Why Join a Credit Union?
Join a credit union and you’ll enjoy a variety of benefits.
Great Financial Services
Credit unions provide a place for members to save and get loans at reasonable rates. Other services vary by credit union, and are tailored to meet members’ needs. This is one place where member voting comes in; as a member, you get to say what’s important to you.
Current services include:
- Online banking
- Credit cards with low or no annual fees and low interest rates
- Low interest rates on mortgages and vehicle loans
- High interest rates on savings accounts, CDs and money market accounts
- Low cost or free checking with low or no minimum balance requirements
- Investment services
- Direct deposits and wire deposits
- Financial education and counseling services
- Notary services
Because of the superior personal attention they give to members — and high quality service — credit unions consistently earn higher customer satisfaction ratings when you compare them to banks. In fact, credit unions have consistently ranked highest for service in a Gallup study commissioned by American Banker magazine.
Credit unions employ knowledgeable member service representatives who will work with you to make your financial transactions as easy and convenient as possible — and help you achieve your financial goals.
Better Rates and Lower Fees
Credit unions pass any “profits” they make directly back to members. Because there are no shareholders to keep happy, credit unions are able to offer, on average, better rates and lower fees.
Credit unions typically offer higher rates on savings and certificates, and much lower rates on loans. That’s because all profits come back to the members, not to a Board of Directors or stockholders.
