What is a credit union?

A credit union is a member-owned financial cooperative. As a not-for-profit cooperative institution, a credit union uses excess earnings to offer members more affordable loans, a higher return on savings, lower fees or new products and services. A credit union is operated entirely by and for their members. Once you deposit money in a credit union, you become a member since your deposit represents your ownership share in the credit union.
