Become a credit union advocate today!
Credit union members are stronger together. There are more than one million credit union members in Iowa, and by acting together, we can have a powerful impact on policy that affects our financial lives.
Why Be a Credit Union Advocate?
Credit unions are different than other financial institutions. Great rates are possible because credit unions are member-owned, not-for-profit cooperatives, meaning all earnings are returned to members in the form of lower rates on loans, lesser fees and higher rates on savings.
While you benefit from the tax status of not-for-profit credit unions, bankers see this as an inconvenience that gets in the way of their profits. The mere presence of credit unions provides consumers a choice that forces banks to keep their products and services at reasonable prices.
The banks don’t like this and are putting their profits over consumer choice by spreading misinformation about our federal tax status. Let’s keep them honest, and send the message that credit unions are truly putting people over profits.
Take action; become a credit union advocate, keep your choice as a consumer and tell the “banksters” that you are standing along side your credit union. To learn how we are fighting for your financial well-being at the state and federal level visit the Iowa Credit Unions’ Stronger Together webpage.
Our voices are stronger together.
