Due to recent internet fraud and email hacking, we are hereby advising all of our members that for your protection, please call a good known contact number to verify any and all wire instructions you receive BEFORE initiating a wire. The credit union or its affiliates will not be held liable if you become a victim of this fraud.

Let your company’s payroll department know you would like to have your paycheck automatically deposited into your Birmingham Bloomfield Credit Union account.
