Learn More About Advantis and How Credit Unions Work

What are Credit Unions?

A credit union is a federally insured financial institution, just like a bank. Unlike banks – and what sets us apart – is that a credit union is owned by all of its customers (often called members). This is important because it means that instead of turning any profits over to shareholders, like banks do, credit unions return profits to customers through better rates and lower fees.
