Credit Unions

Credit unions are enjoying a surge in popularity as customers rebel against big banks. We get a primer on the services they offer and how they compare to banks.

As big banks incur the wrath of protesters across the country,customer-owned financial institutions are thriving. Credit unions have welcomed more new customers in the last two months than they did in all of 2010. We take a look at how credit unions differ from banks, who can join them and what they offer their members.
