Thinking about joining a credit union but aren’t sure about how to choose the right one? We can help with that. With a credit union, you become a member, rather than becoming another account holder at a bank. As a new member, there are some key things to look for in order to determine which credit union is right for your busy life.

Find A Location Near You

What’s the first thing to consider when looking for a credit union? Convenience! Whether you want something close to home or work, choose a location accessible to your area. Make sure the credit union fits into your life and has branches and ATMs in your neighborhood.

Insist On Good Customer Service

This one is self-explanatory. When picking a financial institution, be sure to take time and notice how friendly the workers are. Don’t settle for a location with less than exceptional customer service. Instead, insist on quality. As a new member, you will appreciate the little things, like being greeted by a smile.
