What is a Credit Union?
A credit union (CU) is a not-for-profit, cooperative financial institution owned and run by member-owners to provide a safe place to save and borrow money at reasonable rates. Unlike a bank or other for-profit financial institution, a CU gives its profits back to its members in the form of higher account rates, lower loan rates, lower service fees and other valuable services. Your deposits are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF). The NCUSIF is the federal fund created by Congress in 1970 to insure members' accounts at credit unions up to the federal limit. Administered by the National Credit Union Administration, the NCUSIF is backed by the "full faith and credit" of the U.S. Government.
To join a CU, you must be eligible for membership as determined by the CU's charter. Most credit unions are organized to serve people in a particular community, group or groups of employees, or members of an organization or association.
