Community and Service



The Thompson K-8 International Academy MI First Branch is open for business!!! The branch is staffed by students, and supervised by Michigan First.

For your child to participate, an adult will also need to join as a joint owner. A minimum deposit of just $20.00 is needed to open a joint account.* The joint owner is eligible to enjoy all the benefits that the Credit Union has to offer. Your child will need their social security number and the $20.00 minimum deposit to open their account. The branch is open once a week on Monday's from 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

As one of the leading credit unions in the area since 1926, Michigan First serves more than 70,000 members and has branches throughout metro Detroit, including one at 27000 Evergreen, Lathrup Village, MI 48076. We hope every child at Thompson K-8 will have the opportunity to have his/her own account.

*Minimum balance for all accounts is $10.00 for each account holder, i.e. $20.00 minimum for accounts with two joint owners. Members under the age 18 require joint ownership with a parent or legal guardian. Federally insured by the NCUA
