Why Choose Citizens Community Credit Union?
Citizens Community Credit Union has been serving its members since 1940. Our motto is “Everything we do, we do for you” and we mean it! Our profits are returned to our members in the form of more and better services and more favorable rates on savings and loans. Citizens has consistently been ranked 5 stars annually for safety and security by Bauer Financial, Inc., an independent rating company.
Like all credit unions, we are a not-for-profit, member-owned, financial cooperative, and use our cooperative model to provide our members/owners with better rates on loans and deposits, as well as lower fees and charges. All credit union earnings are reinvested back into our credit union and used to better serve our member/owners.
Credit unions differ from other banks in several ways and allow credit unions to offer lower loan rates, higher savings rates and fewer service fees.:
|Credit Unions||Other Financial Institutions|
|Not-for-profit cooperatives||In business to make profit|
|Owned by members||Owned by outside stockholders|
|Volunteer board of directors||Paid board of directors|
