DEARBORN, Mich., Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DFCU Financial, a leading Michigan credit union, announced today that it returned $25 million – half its 2015 income – to more than 100,000 members through Cash Back, the organization's annual loyalty reward. This year's return marks the largest cash reward paid out by any financial institution in Michigan and tops last year's record-breaking $24 million payout.

"DFCU Financial members made 2015 a great year, and as we continue to grow in communities across the Detroit, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids and Lansing areas, it's important to us that we thank our members for their loyalty, and that they share in our success," said Mark Shobe, president and CEO, DFCU Financial.
