About Credit Unions or the Credit Union Difference

Credit Unions are member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperatives. As such, members pool their savings and make loans to each other at interest rates that are often lower than the rates at other financial institutions. Credit unions are dedicated to improving the lives of their members.
