What is a Credit Union?

A credit union is a cooperative financial institution, owned and controlled by the people who use its services. These people are YOU (the members). Credit Unions serve groups that share something in common, such as where they work, live, or go to church. Credit Unions are not-for-profit, and exist to provide a safe, convenient place for members to save money and to get loans at reasonable rates.
