Open Your Eyes to a Credit Union
It's about more than money. We know it's important, but we believe it shouldn't get in the way of what's more important.
"Important" may be seeing your family smile, building better communities or just making yourself feel good. Whatever it is, we want everyone to have the financial empowerment to live their best life.
So, how can credit unions put you in a better position?
All About Credit Unions
Banking has been around for centuries, but a better way to bank began just a couple hundred years ago.
Credit unions were established to help serve all individuals - no matter what their income was, credit history, where they lived, etc. It was an institution made for all people because everyone has dreams and goals.
The word about credit unions has spread and today there are over 260 million members worldwide.
What makes credit unions different?
Individuals who bank with a credit union are called members. They are more than just a number though - they are owners. When people join, they become a shareholder in that credit union.
That means credit unions are run by their own people... not shareholders who work on Wall Street. Credit Union's profits are put back into the hands of those individuals rather than corporate investors.
FUN FACT: In 2020, Together Credit Union provided:
$26,277,089 in financial benefits to
That's an average of $410 per member household
Note: The more involved the members are in the credit union, the more savings they earn.
What does that mean for you?

- Provide better rates
- Waive certain fees that traditional banks would enforce
- Offer more caring, personalized service
This means higher rates for deposit accounts and lower rates for loan products. Don't get us wrong, there are fees that exist in credit unions but you will notice a significant difference than ones you receive elsewhere.
