The CU Difference

Priority First Federal Credit Union is a full-service, non-profit financial institution owned and operated by its members. Like a bank, we accept deposits and make loans. However, unlike a bank, we are not owned by a group of stockholders seeking the best possible return on their stock. The income generated through our business activities is returned to our member-owners in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings rates, and free or low-cost services.

Additionally, the Credit Union’s Board of Directors is elected by the membership, and each member of the Board serves on a volunteer basis, receiving no compensation.

The credit union difference is at our core. We are a service-driven cooperative. We live by the credit union philosophy “People Helping People”.
