What’s the difference?


Do banks and credit unions all seem the same to you?  You have heard the term “credit union” over and over again but you just don’t know what makes it all that special.  Credit unions are actually much more different from a bank than you think!  Here at Members 1st Federal Credit Union, we take pride in the things that differentiate us from banks, and we want you to better understand why.

There are many distinct differences between credit unions and other banking institutions. If you’re already a member, that’s great. Think back on the reasons that made you switch financial institutions. If you’re not a member, this video will highlight some very good reasons to help you to decide which financial institution is the best for your needs. The benefits of credit union membership are countless!

WITH ALL THAT STUDYING, WHO HAS TIME TO MANAGE THEIR FINANCES?


M1stOnline-App-GraphicFor many, going off to college is the first time students need to manage their finances and budget their money. Rationing out a summer job’s income to last the entire school year is difficult, but possible! It’s all about knowing where you stand in your accounts financially, keeping track and making budgets.

We get it, you are busy and have a million assignments to focus on throughout the school year, and stopping in at the branch isn’t the first thing you want to do. That is why we made it quick and easy for you to manage your money from anywhere, even on your way to class or from the library!

The Members 1st mobile banking app makes it simple to access your money when you need it. It’s as easy as Tweeting!

Mobile Banking allows you to:

  • Make transfers
  • Keep track of your balances
  • Pay bills at your convenience

Another great service that Members 1st offers is text alerts. You can have alerts sent to your phone every time a transaction occurs on your account or even have alerts sent when you are below a certain balance to avoid spending more than you have.

Plus, credit unions offer many surcharge free ATMs located all over the country that you can access without  having to pay extra fees! Just because you are far from home does not mean you are far away from your local credit union services! Click here to find surcharge-free ATMs near you!
