Credit Union Philosophy


The credit union system is made up of organizations at the local, state, and national levels. Credit unions, corporate credit unions, chapters, leagues, and league service corporations serve member needs on the local and state levels. On the national level, Credit Union National Association and its affiliates, CUNA Service Group and U.S. Central Credit Union, provide the leadership, products, and services credit unions need to compete effectively in today's financial marketplace.

The credit union system gives credit unions the strongest support network in the financial services world. Through this cooperative effort, credit unions of all sizes combine their individual strengths and can offer their members a broad range of sophisticated financial services. The programs, products, and services of the credit union system are available to credit unions through league affiliation, and are supported by fees and dues.
