The Credit Union Difference

How is a credit union different from a bank? Banks collect profit to pay shareholders. Credit unions are not-for-profits, and return money back to members in the form of better rates and fewer fees. We offer great perks  and member discounts too.

Credit Unions vs. Banks

To open a Checking Account, you must establish membership by opening a Member Share Savings Account or Member Advantage Savings Account.
