Credit unions provide unmatched consumer-friendly financial products and services. We saved over 100 million members — largely middle class constituents —$9.3 billion last year thanks to our not-for-profit structure, which allows us to return earnings to members though lower fees and higher interest rates on savings.
Unlike the big banks, whose reckless practices flattened the economy in 2008, credit unions fiercely protected our middle class members from the downturn’s devastating effects. That’s what we do. We work tirelessly to serve our members.
Strong Credit Unions. Strong Middle Class.
Our next president must understand that credit unions are critical to the vitality of the middle class. Why? Because credit unions reinvest earnings into communities, while bank profits only pad the pockets of Wall Street..
Ease the Burden
Credit unions only can effectively serve members if the next president recognizes the problems created by overregulation. Our members lost $7.2 billion in 2014 due to regulations that were explicitly designed to reign in the big banks.
Don't Tax My Credit Union
We’re not-for-profit financial institutions. We don’t receive financial support from investors, and we don’t have the ability to raise additional capital.
