What is a Credit Union and Why Should You Join?
Credit Unions are similar to banks, we offer checking, savings, loans, credit cards, and many other financial products and services. However, there are some important differences between Banks and Credit Unions. As a Credit Union, we are a not-for-profit, owned by our members. We have a Volunteer Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee who are elected by our members and are members themselves. Our profits are used to lower interest on loans, increase interest on savings, lower fees, offer products like our No Closing Cost Mortgages, and give back to our local communities.
Maybe Your Bank Should be a Credit Union®
More Than Banking®
Community is at the center of everything we do. As an organization, we back to the communities we serve through scholarships, sponsorships, and local volunteerism. Giving back to the communities we serve is a big part of our culture and it’s another benefit that makes working for CFCU a great experience.
