Credit Tip – Credit Unions

Posted by on Thursday, October 8th, 2020 in Blogs
Credit Union

Everyone should already be putting their money into a bank as a way to securely save and store their money, however most people do not know that there are alternatives to banks that function in a similar fashion known as Credit Unions.

The primary difference between a credit union and a bank is that banks generally exist to create wealth for their owners, while credit unions are not-for-profit organizations. Generally, most credit unions’ stated goal is to serve their members instead of making money for themselves (though they of course have to generate some revenue to pay employees).

A credit union serves all the same functions as a bank–they accept deposits, store money, generate interest, make loans, etc. However, while a bank is owned by a few individuals or an array of investors, every member of a credit union is considered an “owner” of said organization. By becoming a member of a credit union, you become part owner too. To this end, the savings you put into the union help fuel loans given to other members, and the interest paid on loans help generate interest for your savings.

To join a credit union, you usually have to be part of a community that has started one. Some professions or companies offer credit unions for their workers, some credit unions are created by specific religions or spiritual groups, and others are geographically based meant to serve a specific area. Generally credit unions allow family members to join too, so if you are related to someone in a credit union you can inquire to see if you are eligible too!

  •   I highly recommend Fix Your Credit Consulting. They helped remove my Bankruptcy and did it within 9 months. I'm very impressed. I was referred to them by a very reputable Credit Repair Attorney who works with them as well in between things, so they know their stuff and all of the legalities regarding fixing your credit.

    I worked with Mia Lopez who's the greatest and did a very good job of taking care of me and my friend tackling every issue or challenge that we faced. My credit score is now over 800 on all 3 of my credit reports. I referred my friend who had a 480 credit score and it's now over 700.

    They are one of the best if not the best credit repair companies out there. I will definitely work with them again if I need credit repair. Mia Lopez, you are the Greatest! Thank you so much for all of your help Mia. You deserve several raises. Job Well done! I'm one happy customer!

    God Bless!
