Why join a Credit Union?

There are several reasons why it is beneficial to join a credit union.

#1 MEMBER = OWNER
One of the most important reasons is that at the credit union, the customers are members and thus owners of the cooperative. This means that they;
• can help decide on the future of their cooperative
• can also help shape the services they would like to receive from their cooperative
The customer is more than King. 

#2 BENEFITS
When you join a credit union, as a member, you receive several benefits. You can profit from:
• at least 2% interest on savings
• discounts at local businesses
• qualifying for funeral insurance

#3 LOCAL COMMUNITY
Members of credit unions are part of the local community. For example, if the general meeting of members decides to pay out dividends, this means that these dividends will also end up in the local community.
In addition, the cooperatives support all kinds of local charities. So the local community benefits directly when the cooperative is doing well.
