The Difference between a Credit Union and a Bank
While the menu of financial services is often similar between a Credit Union and a bank, you’ll find that rates at Credit Unions are often more member-friendly than they are at traditional banks. This is because unlike banks, Credit Unions return surplus income to their members in the form of dividends, better rates, additional products and services and more branch locations.
As a member-owner, you have certain privileges beyond those of an account holder at a Credit Union. This is apparent in the way Credit Unions are run. Credit Union members elect a volunteer Board of Directors who establishes the Credit Union’s policies. Being democratically operated by its members through the Board of Directors allows each Credit Union account holder an equal say in how the Credit Union is operated, regardless of how much they have deposited at the Credit Union. Banks, meanwhile, appoint a Board of Directors to be responsible to both the shareholders of the bank and the account holders.
