Benefits

Why Join

Members can enjoy a variety of benefits: lower interest rates on loans, credit union service fees are usually free or low, family feel, not just another account number. Our employees make it a point to get to know our members and make a difference in their lives and community. When you are a member of the credit union, you are a member-owner. Which means our members have a say in the direction the credit union is heading. Our board of directors are elected by the membership. Directors are volunteers and are not paid. We are a not-for-profit financial cooperative.
