What Our Members Say About Us

Why four generations of Eschenbachers have joined DCECU … and why they intend to remain members for generations to come

Herb Eschenbacher, member since 1953: “The year-end Loan Interest Rebate can’t be beat. They have some pretty nice people here. They know you, and they know what you need. I wouldn’t bank anywhere else!”

Melanie (Eschenbacher) Mathewson, member since 1985: “Nobody else has the rates and the rebates. I’ve had all my kids open accounts at DCECU. When one of my daughters moved to California and then to Colorado, I told her, ‘Don’t open an account anywhere else!’ With the online services and network of ATMs, you can bank here no matter where you live.”

AuBree (Mathewson) Cherry, member since 1994: “The year-end Loan Interest Rebate is such a benefit. I wish more people knew that they could be members here!”

Landyn Cherry, member since 2006: “My mom opened an account for me a month after I was born. I’ve been saving here since I was a baby!”

The Eschenbacher family – Dow Chemical Employees’ Credit Union members for four generations: AuBree Cherry, Herb Eschenbacher, Melanie Mathewson, Landyn Cherry.
