The credit union difference

As a credit union, we have a different approach to banking. Since credit unions are cooperatives, when you become a member, you become an owner of the credit union. Credit unions report to their members, not stockholders, so your opinion counts! As a not-for-profit organization, we offer:

  • A helpful variety of financial products
  • Convenient services, many at no charge
  • Low rates on loans, lines of credit and credit cards
  • Competitive rates for savings
  • Fewer or lower fees than banks

From federally-insured savings and checking to many types of loans, choose Five Star Federal Credit Union for all your banking needs.
