We Are Not a Bank

Many people outside of credit unions (and probably a lot of credit union members), don’t know how we’re different from a bank. And that’s ok. We do a lot of the same things. But there are some key things that help set us apart from - and above - our banking brethren.

We are not-for-profit cooperative, which means more for you. We do not issue stock or pay dividends to outside stockholders. Here, earnings are returned back to our owners (again, that’s you) in the form of lower rates, higher interest on deposits, and lower fees.
