Credit unions are owned and controlled by the people, or members, who use their services. By joining a credit union, you can enjoy the benefits of reduced fees, higher savings rates and lower loan rates. Anyone can join a credit union as long as you fall within the credit union's field of membership. The field of membership, or common bond, could be based on your employer, geographic location or even membership in a school, labor union, or place of worship. Many credit unions allow family members of existing members to join as well.
First, find a credit union and check on the field (type) of membership. If you believe you may be eligible, contact the credit union or visit their website to see if can join.
