Why choose a credit union over a traditional bank?

The number one question we get asked is, "how is a credit union different from a traditional bank?" Banks tend to be more profit oriented while credit unions focus on service. The model of the entire credit union industry is "people helping people." Banks are for-profit institutions and have a paid board of directors, while credit unions utilize unpaid volunteers. The credit union focus is on providing quality financial products and services that benefit the whole membership. Credit unions often offer lower interest rates, more attractive loan terms, less fees, and better member services. Finally, credit union members benefit from a fee-free network of over 30,000 ATMs worldwide. Now you know the difference between a bank and a credit union.
