We recently asked our Instagram followers, “What makes your credit union unique?”
Here are some of the fantastic responses we received:
Our people are definitely what makes our credit union unique! They give their all every day to help each member they cross paths with. They show kindness, empathy and understanding instead of assuming they know what each person needs/wants.

Electro Savings Credit Union, St. Louis, MO.
Hoosier United Credit Union is unique because of our personal service. We know almost 100% of our members by name and have real relationships with each of them. I would say we truly are a community.
Melody Reed, Member Engagement Representative
Hoosier United Credit Union, Indianapolis, IN
Garden Savings is unique by finding creative ways to fund loans for underbanked individuals who may have troubled credit. We take great pride in helping those who most need it.
Mike Powers, Chief Sales Officer

Financial Plus Credit Union is unique because we have provided superior member service for over 90 years! Without our members, we couldn’t do what we do. We truly believe members come first, and it shows in the way our staff interacts with and takes the time to get to know them while building those relationships. We pride ourselves on not just knowing members’ names, but their lives and circumstances and then doing what we can do to help them overcome financial obstacles!
Megan Stelter, Marketing Manager
Financial Plus CU, Des Moines, IA
We believe it’s the way we treat all of our members (both new and existing). We’re the kind of people you can go to when no one else is in your corner to pick you back up and get you back in the fight.
Kyle Trondle, Marketing Manager
T&I Credit Union, Clawson, MI
We definitely punch above our weight as a local credit union. Our leadership is focused on continued technological growth to improve every level of member user experience while, at the same time, focusing on initiatives that are rewarding to our team members.
Alex Heil, Associate Director of Marketing Strategy
DuPage Credit Union, Naperville, IL
Our credit union finds ways to help the underserved people in our community. We can help when most other financial institutions won’t attempt to try. Our motto is that we work hard for hard-working people. Our members know we watch out for them. We make them feel like they own the place… because they do.
Andrea Engle , Vice President of Marketing
Journey Credit Union, Des Moines, IA
Lincoln Maine Federal Credit Union is unique in the way we uphold the credit union difference. People helping people is our core, and our employees know how to meet a member where they are. We can’t always be the “win” for them, but we can know they are all different and have different approaches and needs in life. I think we live that every day with them.
