We’re like a bank, only better

Credit unions are not-for-profit organizations that serve their members and communities.


During the Great Depression, credit unions helped restore trust in financial institutions. They are still building trust and wealth for members today.

  • Credit unions are member owned – your voice counts
  • We provide better rates, lower fees and better service than banks
  • Profits made by credit unions are returned to the members in reduced fees, better rates and higher dividends
  • You can only join via a connection with a partner organization (you may qualify by family or group connection)
  • We invest in your community – local businesses, schools, organizations and events
  • Your accounts are insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Insurance Fund, which is backed by the U.S. Treasury
  • We provide finance-related services such as investing, insurance and financial guidance
