Diversified General Federal Credit Union was started in 1966 by General Tire Employees.

In 1985, the General Tire Logansport Employees Federal Credit Union name was changed to Diversified General Federal Credit Union.

As a member-owned financial institution, we exist solely to improve the financial well-being of the members. Credit Unions promote thrift, and income is passed along to its members in the form of higher dividends on savings accounts, lower interest on loans, or new and improved services.

The Credit Union started in a tiny office in the factory. We later moved to our own office located on 4th Street. And finally, we came to East Broadway in 1998.

In 2015, we went through a major remodel and had a Drive-up built.

What is a Credit Union?

A credit union is a member-owned, not-for-profit, cooperative financial institution.

    • Provide the same products and services – including surcharge-free ATMs, online financial services, and free savings and checking accounts – as other financial institutions
    • Return their profits to their credit union members by providing better services, better rates, lower fees and special discounts
    • Operate under the philosophy of “people helping people,” allowing their members to pool their savings, lend to one another, and own the organization
    • Follow conservative investment practices and lend responsibly

Federal credit unions are chartered and supervised by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). Through this federal agency, savings in federal and most state-chartered credit unions are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF), a federal fund backed by the United States government. The funds in some credit unions are privately insured.

Field of Membership

In 1966, our field of membership was very limited to certain local businesses. In 2002, there was a formal request to add persons who live, work, worship, or go to school in, and businesses, and other legal entities located in the Underserved Area in Cass County, Indiana. Our credit union grows through the addition of groups with a common bond such as businesses, associations or schools. These groups are called Select Employee Groups, or SEGs. We have multiple SEG partners representing many of our members. Employees of General Tire & Rubber Company, who worked in Logansport or Peru. Employees of Matthew Warren (formerly known as Rockwell.) Members of Local #4863 and Local # 3261 of the United Steelworkers of America in Logansport, and Local # 6982 of the United Steelworkers of America in Monticello.
