Credit Union

What is a Credit Union?
Credit Unions are not-for-profit cooperative associations that are owned and run by their members. They offer many different personal financial products and services solely for their members. You are eligible to join a credit union if you possess a commonality such as a place of employment, organization or church group.

Because credit unions do not need to generate a profit to satisfy their stockholders, excess earnings are returned to members in the form of extremely competitive dividend rates paid on savings and investment accounts, excellent interest rates on loans and new products and services.
