What We Do

A Credit Union is a group of people, connected by a “common bond” who save together and lend to each other at a fair and reasonable rate of interest. Credit Unions offer members the chance to have control over their own finances by making their own savings work for them. Every Credit Union is owned by its members – the people who save with it and borrow from it. They exist only to serve members, without profiting from their needs.

The signing parent or guardian will be the ONLY person with the ability to operate on the minor account until such time as the account reaches full membership at age 16. Any minor aged 7 years or older will need to be present every time the parent/guardian wishes to operate on the account. This does not apply to members under 7 years of age.
