What is an Online Credit Union?
While banks (including online banks) are public, profit-driven companies designed to make money for shareholders, online credit unions are not-for-profit, cooperative financial institutions operated by members and based entirely on the web.
In an online credit union like Quorum, profits are returned to members in the form of low fees for financial products and services. A shared sense of community provides members with peace of mind and a connection to something larger than themselves, as well as loyalty and service to other members.
Online credit unions are carefully regulated and are a safe place to store your money. Just like the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insures banks, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) insures credit unions.
