The staff at Mountain Laurel Federal Credit Union would like you to stop into the credit union and see for yourself what makes credit unions better than other financial institutions.
Here’s some questions and answers concerning credit unions…
WHAT MAKES A CREDIT UNION DIFFERENT?
Credit Unions are owned by it’s members. All money or profits that the credit union makes are returned to the members in the form of dividends. Banks on the other hand have stockholders who invest money in their bank in hopes of making a profit. All money made at the bank are returned to the investors.
HOW DOES A CREDIT UNION WORK?
When you give money to the credit union or make a deposit, the credit union can loan that money to other members. The credit union charges that person “interest” on that money. Interest is a fee that is paid by the borrower for use of the money. The credit union uses the interest to pay bills and to pay dividends to the members for the use of their money.
