The Advantages of a Credit Union
The Advantages of Getting a Personal Loan From a Credit Union
You can get a personal loan from a few places, including your local bank or a local savings and loan (S&L) company. But credit unions are often the best places to turn for a personal loan. A credit union is a special kind of bank formed by people who have something in common—often a shared workplace, profession or set of values.
United Teletech Financial is a credit union that was originally created in 1967 to serve employees of Bell Labs, but we’re now open to anyone who lives, works, worships, attends school or volunteers in Monmouth County, Ocean County and parts of central Middlesex County. We’re a not-for-profit financial collective.
While we offer the same services that banks do, we’re owned by our members. That means that our earnings go right back to our members in the form of better rates, lower fees and extra services.
Why Credit Unions Are Good for Personal Loans
Credit unions like us are great places to turn for personal loans. That’s because we tend to offer lower-priced services than ordinary banks. At your credit union, you’ll likely find lower rates on loans than you would at a bank. And you’ll get other benefits of being a credit union member, too, like free checking or low minimum balance requirements on accounts.
Credit unions may also offer lower minimum loan amounts than banks, letting you get the flexibility you need to borrow just the right amount. You might also find that our fees are lower than other lenders.
With a credit union, you’ll also get a personal loan from a place that values you as an individual. You’re not just a number. While banks see only dollar signs, your credit union sees YOU. And shouldn’t a personal loan be just what we call it: Personal? You need a lender who works with you, supports you as a credit union member and takes your entire situation into account when making loan decisions.
