Credit Unions Offer Money Saving Opportunities

While banks and credit unions offer nearly identical services and account choices, there are some key, money saving differences.

Joining a credit union is a smart choice

When you join Global Credit Union you partner with a financial institution that cares about its members and the community they live and work in.

As a credit union member, you can expect to have a much more rewarding and meaningful experience. Because credit unions are member-owned and not-for-profit, they are more attuned to the needs of their members and aren’t driven by investors or their bottom line. Credit union members own a piece of the institution, and the revenue created through operations gets returned to members in the form of better rates, technology enhancements, and more.


How does membership help you save?

Let’s start with time

Your time is money, and not only does Global stay updated with the latest in do-it-yourself online banking and card security, we offer products for all of your life’s financial needs.

Personal loans and insurance, home mortgages, planning for the future

Global does all of that with the same value and convenience you’re accustomed to. Your favorite credit union is a one-stop shop that can help you avoid running all over town, saving you time and energy you can use to concentrate on other aspects of your life.

Personalized service

When you visit our branches, you’ll be greeted with friendly, familiar faces and representatives who care. They’re always ready and willing to help you with whatever you need—from simple account questions to supporting you with major life purchases.

How about money?

As a not-for-profit, member-owned cooperative, Global gives back to members in the form of lower loan rates, fewer fees, and higher returns on deposits than you’d typically find at traditional banks. That’s more money for your savings account, your pocket, and your family—while still having access to all the financial services you need for all of life’s milestones.
