What is a Credit Union?

Credit unions focus on the needs of all their members instead of profit for stockholders. All members benefit - individually and collectively.

  1. A credit union is a not-for-profit financial institution that is owned and run by its members.
  2. The Board of Directors is democratically elected by the membership.
  3. All members of the credit union have one vote, regardless of the amount on deposit.
  4. The prime function of the credit union is to serve its members.
