Dort Federal Credit Union kicked off the new year and new decade with a new name. The Grand Blanc based credit union will now be known as Dort Financial Credit Union.

The change went into effect on January 1, and was part of the credit union’s conversion from a federal charter to a state charter. Now membership is open to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Michigan. Current Dort members will see no changes in their service and can keep their existing account numbers, checks and credit cards.

Dort Financial President and CEO Vicki Hawkins said,  “We are very excited to have the opportunity to grow the credit union and expand our financial products and service offerings to the entire state.”  The credit union currently has 10 branches around Mid-Michigan and serves 95,000 members. They also have snaming rights to the Dort Federal Event Center in Flint, which is home of the Flint Firebirds hockey team.
