What Is The Difference Between Credit Unions and Other Financial Institutions?
Credit unions are local, not-for-profit financial cooperatives that are owned by their members. Credit unions are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. All members have a voice in how the credit union operates. Other institutions often merge, change names, or even go out of business. They are profit-based and stockholder-owned. They tend to charge higher loan rates and are more likely to charge fees and require high minimum balances.
