A few years later in 1960 they moved into their first office space and in the late 90’s the group expanded to include community members from Livonia. To show community members that their focus was helping them they changed the name to Community Choice Credit Union. In 2002 the Community Choice CU expands once more making it the biggest of it’s kind in Michigan.
Up until the year 2015 this credit union has merged with the likes of Research Federal Credit Union, expanded operations to Farmington Hills, launched a foundation to help students called the Community Choice Foundation, partnered with Rome CU to expand to Royal Oak and finally merges with NuPath Community CU to further expand into the western side of Michigan.
