Frequently Asked Questions

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.

Being a member of the Credit Union means you are a part of an organization that is not-for-profit. Unlike banks, credit unions are not focused on making a profit, but determining how those profits can be given back to you, our members. This translates to better interest rates on loans and credit cards as well as higher returns on dividends. In addition, getting a loan from a credit union is easier than from a bank.

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

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.
