Service 1 Federal Credit Union was chartered August 7, 1940 by employees of Continental Motors. The first office was located in the basement of the Time Office at Continental Motors in Muskegon, Michigan. The original founders wanted a safe and friendly environment where they could save their money; the two services offered were savings and loans. In 1950 the credit union moved into an office on West Western Avenue in Muskegon, where it continued to grow.
Over the years, to better reflect our mission and expanding membership, our name was changed to Service 1 Federal Credit Union. We have evolved into a full-service institution that responds to member feedback, offering numerous progressive services.
Our main office is located on the shores of Lake Michigan in beautiful Muskegon, Michigan at 1075 E. Sherman Boulevard. We serve our members online 24/7 and from six branch locations: three in Muskegon, MI; Mobile, Alabama; Neosho, Missouri; and Shell Knob, Missouri.
Service 1 Federal Credit Union has over 21,000 members and nearly 500 companies in its field of membership.

Livin' the Mission
The Service 1 FCU mission is “Member Driven. Community Focused.” This stated purpose is a beacon that brings together employees and diverse goals, guiding them towards the achievement of those goals.
Member Driven: Service 1 FCU can provide guidance and tools to help members get back on track, repair credit, and move toward their dreams instead of living paycheck-to-paycheck and "just getting by." Our purpose is to assist members in achieving financial success like home ownership, upgrading a vehicle, increasing credit card purchasing power, and even building a college or retirement nestegg.
