To open an account, simply fill out a membership card
and deposit a minimum of $20. The maximum allowed in a share account is $40,000. Loans of up to $40,000 are available to members.

WHAT IS A CREDIT UNION?
The “credit union” idea originated in Germany. The idea was for members to pool their small, but regular, savings and provide low-interest loans. The plan worked well, and today there are more than 17,000 credit unions in the United States.

Credit unions have become popular for many reasons, but the primary one is that they provide loans at low interest rates to credit union members.

IS MY MONEY SAFE?
ABSOLUTELY!  Credit unions are chartered under the terms of the Federal Credit Union Act and supervised by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). Each member’s savings are insured to the full legal limit by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF).

WHATS SO SPECIAL ABOUT CREDIT UNIONS?
Credit Unions are owned and run by the members. Members make up the Board of Directors, which manages and elects officers to handle the operations of the credit union, and members make up theSupervisory Committee, which ensures the credit union is run properly. Our members are joined by a common bond, and we serve ONLY our members.
There are no outside stockholders--almost ALL net earnings, after expenses and required transfers, are paid out to our members in dividends.
