It’s important to find a financial institution that fits your needs and always has your best interest in mind. Though credit unions and banks have similar products, there are three key reasons why credit unions, especially TruStone Financial, outshine their competition.
We Always Put You First
While banks are for-profit organizations, credit unions are not-for-profit. Credit unions have volunteer-based board of directors and their profits are returned to the members through benefits such as larger dividends, reduced fees, discounted loan rates and improved technology.
Products Are Made Just For You
Every credit union has a story of how they were first created. For TruStone Financial, it was a group of eight teachers who came together to create a banking option that served them and their peers. They had a vision for the credit union, a place where teachers and their families could safely store their hard earned savings and a company who would lend them money for their first home or reliable transportation that got them from place to place. To this day, TruStone Financial is proud to offer products and services that are tailored to the needs of our members to help them achieve their financial goals.
Member Service is Our Top Priority
Credit unions are member-focused and community driven. Serving our TruStone Financial members online, over the phone and in-person at our 14 branch locations is always our top priority. Our knowledgeable staff take the time to understand our members’ needs and goals before partnering to find the best financial solutions. TruStone Financial employees are also engaged in the communities we call home through community events, fundraisers and financial education.
