Credit unions are about helping people improve their financial lives.
As not-for-profit, member-owned financial cooperatives, credit unions provide savings, credit and many other financial services to their members. Umm, what exactly does that mean? It means that when you decide to put your money in a credit union, you immediately have a say in how it’s run. (Pretty cool, huh?)
