Credit unions are co-operative: It is owned and governed by its members. As a result, it exists solely to provide you with a safe, convenient place to save money, obtain loans at reasonable rates and receive other needed services.




  Credit unions are not-for-profit: All credit unions are owned by members; there are no outside shareholders. Any earnings are returned to members in the form of lower rates on loans and credit cards, more competitive return on savings, low / no fees and value-added services.
 

 

  Credit unions are volunteer driven: A credit union's policy-making board of directors and some of its committees are made up of members who are elected by other members. In other words, as a credit union member, you have a say in how it is run.
