Credit Unions vs. Banks

Whether you’ve just heard of a credit union or you’re already a member, you may not fully realize the difference between credit unions and banks. On International Credit Union Day in 2016, we visited Little Amps Coffee Roasters in downtown Harrisburg, PA to see what community members knew.

Many of our participants knew the basics, which are highlighted in this video – that a credit union is not-for-profit, member owned, and community oriented. But, belonging to a credit union is so much more. Read more about us and check out our Community Report Card to learn about our efforts to give back to the community and help empower individuals with financial education.

We'd love to talk with you about bringing our financial know-how messages and free financial education seminars to your campus, workplace or community organization. Email walletworks@psecu.com or call 717.777.2189 for more information.
