Credit Unions are Not-For-Profit
Credit Unions exist to benefit their members, not outside shareholders. They generally offer better rates and lower fees than most banks.
Credit Unions are Owned by their Members, Not Stockholders
Each person who deposits money in a credit union becomes a member of the credit union because their deposit is considered a share of the ownership. Credit Unions are run by a volunteer board of directors elected by and from the membership.
Federal Credit Unions are Insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF)
The NCUSIF is managed by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), an agency of the federal government. Your savings are federally insured to at least $250,000 and backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government. Not one penny of insured savings has ever been lost by a member of a federally insured credit union.
