The credit union functions as a member-owned financial cooperative institution whose goal is to serve its members. People acquire membership by opening and maintaining a share savings account. Since credit unions are not-for-profit, their goal is to give the best service at the lowest cost to its members.
Credit unions offer:
- Higher dividends
- Lower loan rates
- Lower to no fees on services
Who is eligible to become a member?
- Immediate family members of existing members, defined as the following: spouses, children, siblings, parents, grandparents, grandchildren, step parents, step children, step siblings and adoptive relationships
