Why Should You Choose The Credit Union??
Choosing the Credit Union to take care of your banking needs is the smart choice!! Credit Union’s are member owned, so being a member makes you an owner and gives you a vote! Credit Union’s are not for profit cooperatives unlike your traditional banks which are strictly for profit. Banks give their profits to their shareholders while credit unions give back profit to their members in the form of higher savings rates and lower loan rates.
A Credit Union’s board of directors are all volunteers, unlike banks which have a highly paid board of directors. We are privately insured through American Share Insurance (ASI) rather than FDIC insurance which is backed by the government. ASI is held to a higher standard than insurance upheld by the federal government.
If you are considering joining the Credit Union and have any more questions, please call one of our offices and someone from our member service team can assist you.
