Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives owned by their members (the account holders). There are no stockholders; credit unions are run by a volunteer board of directors that is prohibited by law from receiving compensation for their work. Because of their unique not-for-profit structure, credit unions return profits back to their owners (the account holders) generally through lower loan rates, higher savings rates, and affordable products and services.
