Established in 1955, TruChoice began as the credit union for employees of Maine Medical Center. Over the years, we've grown quite a bit, merging with other employee credit unions, including those at Mercy, Unum, and most recently, the Portland Police. In 2005 we recognized our growing membership, changing our name to TruChoice and establishing a community charter that allowed us to serve everyone in Cumberland and York Counties. Recently, we added 8 new counties to our field of membership, and can now serve folks from Sagadahoc to York, with all points in between!
For over 65 years TruChoice has built a reputation in the community as a trusted partner with a deeply held commitment to the idea of people helping people. We are deeply involved in several charitable organizations, including the Maine Children’s Cancer Program and the McAuley House, and have a scholarship program that helps Maine graduates realize their education dreams.
We believe that every person deserves to have their story heard, and we'll work with you to make sure you are on the best financial footing - your success is how we measure our success!
The Board of Directors of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Maine Employees Credit Union believe that a partnership with TruChoice is in the best interest of the entire membership, allowing us to provide many new options members have asked for over the years.
Right now, our proposed merger is under regulatory review by the NCUA. Once approved, we will send information about a special member meeting to officially vote to merge with TruChoice FCU. Your voice is important, and we'll be sending you information about those next steps over the next few months. We'll also continue to update this page as those details become available.
Once the vote is complete, you’ll be contacted by TruChoice and given information about how the transition will happen. We’ll make it as seamless as possible, and we’re confident you’ll be quite happy with this change. Your patience and support are greatly appreciated! If you have questions, we understand. Change can seem overwhelming, and we want you to know that we’re here to help you navigate the switch. Keep an eye out for more information about the partnership and what it means for you.
First and foremost, we want to assure you that your funds are secure, and you will continue to receive local, personal service.
