Virginia Credit Union members enjoy a variety of personal financial services, but we're very different from a bank.
|Credit unions are member-owned financial cooperatives. Credit unions exist solely to serve their members.
||Banks are for-profit corporations.
|Credit union earnings are used to serve the membership's needs. There are no outside stockholders—only members.
||Banks are in business to make profits for its stockholders, who may not even be bank customers.
|A credit union serves only its members. It has a defined field of membership approved by its government regulators.
||Banks serve the general public.
|Members on credit union boards of directors serve in a volunteer capacity.
|Bank boards of directors are paid for their services.
When you join, you become a member and an owner. Join today and enjoy the credit union difference!
