banks vs credit unions do you know the difference
Banks vs. Credit Unions : Do you know the difference?
  • As soon as you deposit funds into a credit union account, you become a partial owner
  • and participate in the union's profitability.
  • Credit unions are formed by large corporations and organizations for their employees and members.

Unlike banks that are open to anyone, laws require credit unions to have a defined field of membership

  • which means you'll have to be a member of that group to access the credit union and its services.
  • The field of membership can be broad, including an employer, church, school, community and employee group.

"Out of the 8,000 credit unions, almost 25 percent are community-based

  • Churchgoers are eligible to join their church's credit union
  • as are students and faculty of a college and university.

The not-for-profit financial institutions,

  • which offer everything from savings accounts to automobile loans,
  • are attractive to consumers because they offer competitive rateson loans and have money to put to work.
  • Credit unions have enjoyed a nice spurt in growth since the financial crisis and are flush with cash and want to make loans

  • Few or no restrictions on the number of withdrawals or checks per month (some checking accounts offer a limited number of “free” checks per month and then charge a fee if more checks are written).

May pay interest, with some accounts paying higher interest rates as your balance increases.

  • Usually charges a monthly maintenance fee (which may be waived under certain circumstances, such as maintaining a minimum daily or monthly balance, or if the account is linked to a savings account in the same institution).
