Join a Credit Union

Credit unions serve groups of people who share a “common bond.” Some credit unions serve only one group, while others may serve a variety of groups. A group might be the employees of a business, the military, state, local or federal governmental agencies, schools, members of a club, association or a church. Some credit unions serve the residents of a particular community. Another way credit unions spread the benefits of membership is through family membership. In most cases, family members of a credit union member are eligible to join that credit union as well.
