It’s not every day that you get to join an award-winning podcast broadcasting “live from Joe’s mom’s basement!” This month I had the pleasure of joining Stacking Benjamins co-host Joe Saul-Sehy and colleagues in the credit union business to talk about the unique benefits we offer our members.

It’s no surprise that the combination of superior service and savings dominated the conversation. After all, a credit union is member-owned and exists to serve its members! Navy Federal is no exception. Helping members is what we do – whether it’s with an auto loan, mortgage or exceptional service at one of our worldwide branches.

In the clip above, I talk about the customized products and services credit unions can offer members – from free checking accounts that accrue interest to mortgage financing offers that suit every financial lifestyle.

Here are even more benefits you can expect as a credit union member:

  • More competitive rates, including better loan and savings rates
  • Fewer fees, including ATM fee rebates and free checking
  • Convenience and accessibility – Many credit unions offer locations in the communities where their members live, along with mobile and online banking options for access anytime, anywhere.
  • Superior customer service – Since credit unions are cooperatives, members come first. This means affordable financial products and services are created to meet members’ needs.
  • Guidance and support – Credit unions are committed to financial literacy, often providing free financial guidance and tips to the community.

From product offerings to customer experience, members are a credit union’s top priority. I’ve been a credit union member since I was a toddler, so I’ve been able to experience the lifelong benefits of membership first-hand. Here at Navy Federal – a credit union serving the military and their families for more than 80 years – we’re able to provide members a lifetime of guidance and support, built on trust and shared values.
