Membership Benefits of a Credit Union


The biggest distinction from being a member of a credit union, and a customer of a bank, is a foundation of democratic, cooperative principles. A credit union is a not-for-profit cooperative, where customers are rather members, or member-owners. Earnings are paid back to the member-owners in the form of higher savings rates and lower loan rates. Banks are for-profit corporations where earnings and profits are paid to shareholders.family of three laughing in a park
