Houston Credit Repair Expert, Vanessa Perry explains the differences between banks and credit unions and the advantages and disadvantages of both in the latest episode of Ask Impeccable.
Banks are lending institutions built solely for profit. When you put your money in a bank they take the money and invest to build wealth for the bank itself. Banks can be local, nationwide, even worldwide.
Credit unions are profit for the people and by the people. Unlike banks, credit unions save money for their users and put money back in to increase overall wealth for the users rather than the financial institution as a whole. Credit Unions typically are local or statewide.
Banks usually have a wider range of applicants. Credit unions require their clients to live, work or worship in the same zip code. They usually require a membership which requires you to open a savings or checking account. This requires a small fee five dollars. Qualifying for different loans and credit cards vary between banks and credit unions. If you do not qualify for a specific loan or card you may want to consider credit restoration.
