MIDFLORIDA Credit Union, founded in 1954, is a credit union based in Lakeland, Florida. As of 2018, MIDFLORIDA has 47 locations throughout the state of Florida.[1] MIDFLORIDA has 300,074 members and $3.25 billion in assets as of June 31st, 2018[2], making MIDFLORIDA the fourth-largest credit union in the state of Florida.[3] MIDFLORIDA Credit Union is regulated by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) as a federally insured state-chartered credit union. MIDFLORIDA was officially chartered in 1935 and was assigned NCUA charter number 68600.[4]

History[edit]

MIDFLORIDA Credit Union was founded in 1954 in Lakeland as the Polk County Teachers Credit Union,[5] and currently serves a large part of the Central Florida area. In 2002, MIDFLORIDA expanded its community charter to include Okeechobee, Sumter and Hardee counties. MIDFLORIDA became a state-chartered credit union in 2009, shortening the company name to MIDFLORIDA Credit Union.[6]

Bay Gulf Merger[edit]

On June 15, 2010, MIDFLORIDA and Bay Gulf Credit Union announced a merger[7] between the two credit unions, which added Bay Gulf's approximately 20,000 members and $140 million assets to MIDFLORIDA's then 130,000 members and $1.4 billion assets.[8] As a result of the merger, MIDFLORIDA gained access to the Tampa Bay area and expanded services to all or part of 14 Florida counties.

Space Coast acquisition[edit]

Near the end of 2011, MIDFLORIDA Credit Union and Space Coast Credit Union announced that MIDFLORIDA would acquire 6 Tampa-area branches from Space Coast, based in Melbourne, Florida.[9] This acquisition added 16,000 members to MIDFLORIDA for a total of 35,000 members and 14 branches in Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties.

Indian River Credit Union merger[edit]

In 2012, MIDFLORIDA Credit Union merged with Indian River Federal Credit Union, based in Vero Beach, Florida. The merger added Indian River's 9,100 members and $55.5 million assets to MIDFLORIDA, giving the credit union two additional branches in Vero Beach and Sebastian, Florida.[10][11] These conversions expanded MIDFLORIDA’s ability to provide services across the state, from the Tampa Bay market (Hillsborough and Pinellas County) to the Treasure Coast.
