How do credit unions differ from banks?

Because credit unions are not-for-profit, every dollar we make goes to providing more value to our members and the communities we serve. At a credit union, you can trust that you’re getting personalized service and competitive rates.

Credit Union:

  • Member-owned
  • Not-for-profit financial cooperative
  • Earnings returned to members through great rates and low fees
  • Member-elected volunteer Board of Directors
  • Personalized and focused on you, the member

Bank:

  • Shareholder-owned
  • For-profit, bottom-line driven
  • Profits are given to shareholders as dividends
  • Paid Board of Directors
  • Focus on profits
