Credit Union Difference

Credit unions are not-for-profit financial service cooperatives with a mission to promote savings and provide access to credit for provident purposes.

Members benefit from credit unions' not-for-profit nature through more attractive savings and loan rates as well as generally lower fees.

Credit unions are democratically owned and controlled institutions that take pride in their "People Helping People" philosophy.

Credit unions have no outside stockholders, so earnings are returned to members in the form of dividends on savings, lower loan rates and fees or additional services.
