Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

1.

Credit unions seek to promote their members best interests rather than profits. The credit union uses money that you and other members deposit to make loans to other credit union members. This act is similar to a traditional bank, but credit unions can often offer better rates on saving products and low interest rates on loan products. Credit unions accept members based on a certain criteria. Inquire with your credit union to determine eligibility.

2.

Credit unions view their members as owners of the institution, often offering lower fees, higher savings rates, and lower interest rates on loans. The personalized approach to members is what separates credit unions from traditional banks. In addition, getting a loan from a credit union is easier than from a bank.

3.

Yes. Being a credit union member will give you access to lower fees for accounts and loans. This additional savings may allow you to pay down existing debt faster, leading to an increase in your credit score.

4.

Members should join a credit union because they are owned by their members (as opposed to banks, who have stakeholders). This means that when a credit union earns profits, their members are the ones who benefit from lower interest rates on loans and higher earnings on savings. Credit unions also offer free services such as mobile and online banking.

5.

Credit unions are good for your financial goals and convenience. They offer higher savings compared to traditional banks, with lower interest rates on loans and less eligibility requirements. Credit unions also offer more financial literacy resources than traditional banks and provide higher rates of return for your savings account. Other credit union benefits include:

  • Lower loan rates and credit card rates
  • Less eligibility requirements
  • Higher rates on savings accounts
  • Community-driven, success is felt by its members
  • Personal credit assistance
  • Local scholarships and grants
  • Greater financial resources than traditional banks

6.

Opening a checking or savings account is easy. While many credit unions will allow you to open an account for free, there is often a monthly fee that can be waived if simple criteria is met.
