Spring Cleaning Your Finances

Springtime is all about renewal and starting again, and that makes it the perfect time to take a closer look at your finances. Perhaps you’re looking for a way to simplify your banking, or you’ve been unhappy with your current financial institution. Maybe you’re thinking about making the switch from a traditional bank to a credit union. No matter what kind of financial cleanup you’re looking for, Mission Federal Credit Union can help.

Why switch to Mission Fed?

Interested in simplifying and switching from a traditional bank to a credit union? Credit unions offer the security and services you need all in one place, with the personal service and benefits you rarely get at a big bank. Credit unions like Mission Fed are member-owned, not-for-profit organizations that operate in the interest of their members, rather than corporate interests. Credit unions return surplus profits to their members with lower interest rates, dividends, excellent customer service and other advantages. And, since credit unions elect a volunteer Board of Directors, all members get an equal say in the operation of the credit union, while traditional banks aim to maximize corporate profits and are accountable to bank shareholders. Now that’s a streamlined experience.

At Mission Fed, we put people before profit, offering friendly personal service, great rates and unique benefits you won’t find anywhere else—like the $1 Million Mission Fed Money Match, which rewards our members for being a part of the Mission Fed Family. Mission Fed also believes in giving back to the community, including the educational community we originally served in 1961. We also give back to local nonprofits and partners, so we can make a positive impact and keep community we love healthy and flourishing.
