OSWEGO, Ill. — Earthmover Credit Union (ECU) and Peoples Energy Credit Union are excited to announce their upcoming merger. Peoples Energy Credit Union members will join Earthmover Credit Union’s membership and operate under the Earthmover name.

“Merging with Earthmover Credit Union will allow us to continue acting in the best interest of our members by providing convenient access to a wider range of products and services, better technology and more value, without sacrificing the service you expect and deserve from a credit union,” Peoples Energy Board Chairperson Cecilia James said. 

This mutually beneficial decision was reached in order to ensure the long-term success of Peoples Energy Credit Union’s membership. The merger will expand the availability of products and services for Peoples Energy members. The merger is expected to be completed by July 1, 2024.

Peoples Energy Credit Union selected Earthmover Credit Union as a suitable merger candidate based on their impressive commitment to financial wellness, organizational strength and shared mission. Peoples Energy Credit Union brings 1,900 valued members with them.

“We are eager to welcome the Peoples Energy members into the Earthmover family and share our many products and services with them,” Earthmover Credit Union President/CEO Kelly McDonough said. “We will be reaching out to welcome them and hope to strengthen our relationship.”

Earthmover Credit Union has over $380 million in assets and over 29,000 members, serving the northern Illinois community since 1958. The Peoples Energy Credit Union location in Chicago will permanently close and members will now be served at any of Earthmover’s five branches and ATM network.

Peoples Energy members will receive information with details regarding the merger. Earthmover’s website will be kept updated with the latest information. Both parties are predicting a smooth transition that will ensure the continued financial strength of both memberships.
