We think everyone deserves a better deal. As a not-for-profit, member-owned credit union, we put our members first. That's why we offer free checking to all our members. Find the services, features and technology you want, all for the price that some financial institutions can't compete with: $0.
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.
Our banking model isn't the only thing that's different – our financial centers break the mold, too. Because we want to return as much value to our members as possible by lowering the costs of banking, most of our centers don't handle cash. Instead, we've invested in technology such as Online, Mobile, and ATM Banking so most transactions can be done at your convenience—anywhere, anytime.
