Are credit unions safe?

While both credit unions and banks offer financial services, there are key differences:

  • Ownership: Banks are for-profit and owned by shareholders. Credit unions are not-for-profit cooperatives owned by their members.
  • Focus: Banks prioritize maximizing profits, while credit unions focus on serving their members’ financial needs. This often leads to lower fees, better rates, and more personalized service at credit unions.
