DENVER-The $176-million Gateway Credit Union said it plans to merge with two other Colorado credit unions that are wrapping up a merger of their own. Gateway will join with $565-million DPS Credit Un-ion, which earlier this year merged with Safeway Rocky Mountain Credit Union.

Together, the credit unions serve Denver and its southern, western and eastern suburbs. Gateway CU members will vote on the merger with DPSCU/SRMCU in June, 2006. The combined organization will have approximately $890 million in assets and 76,400 members, and is expected to take another year to complete. The credit unions reported they are currently finalizing a name change.
