Credit Unions Thrive Here
Since 1948, International Credit Union Day has been marked as a celebration of the movement and those who support and work in the credit union industry. To mark the occasion, let's play the credit union version of 'Did you know?'!
Members own the credit unions. As a credit union member, you are a stockholder in the organization. You have voting rights when it's time to elect new board members. You can attend a meeting each year to gain knowledge on how the organization is doing and give insight into the direction of the organization.
Credit unions are not-for-profit organizations. Any profits generated throughout the year are used to benefit you as a member. Those profits are invested into new products and services, lower loan rates or higher deposit rates.
Credit unions have shared ATM and branch CO-OPs. Many credit unions share ATMs, which means members nationwide have access to thousands of free ATMs. Employment Security Credit Union offers 30,000 shared ATMs and 5,400 shared branches.
There are 6,153 credit unions in the United States. Missouri has 119 credit unions with 1,518,671 members.
