Why Do Credit Unions Have Better Rates?

There’s a reason more than 130 million people belong to a credit union. Individuals choose credit unions over traditional banks for higher dividend rates, minimal account fees, and lower interest rates on loan products. But how can a small army of 5,000+ federally insured credit unions offer these benefits and a host of other financial benefits to everyday consumers?

What is the difference between a credit union and a bank?

When it comes to managing your finances, you have several options available to you, including banks and credit unions. While both offer similar financial products and services, there are some key differences between the two that can affect your decision about which one to choose.
