A credit union is a not-for-profit, financial cooperative that offers the same financial products and services as banks. But, one key difference is that credit unions exist for the purpose of helping their members financially, not to make a profit. When you join a credit union, you’re not just a customer. You are a member that owns a piece of the credit union. Rather than paying profits to unknown stockholders all over the world, the excess earnings are passed back to members in the form of competitive rates, additional products and services, and lower fees – saving you money. Credit unions are founded on the philosophy of “People Helping People,” which is demonstrated through unmatched service and dedication to their members.
When you join, you will become an owner of the University of Hawaii Federal Credit Union – the University’s Credit Union. As a UHFCU member, you will enjoy warm, friendly service, convenience, and money-saving rates and fees. Now’s the time to join a “wholesome alternative” with truly local roots, trustworthy advice, and many of the same products and services you’ll find at the big banks.
