A member is eligible for a loan once they have met the requirement. Members may borrow up to 10 times their Shares depending on the loan types. Interest rates on loans are very competitive and vary according to the share ratio. All interest rates are calculated monthly on the reducing balance. Once you are borrowing more than you have saved, collateral (security) may be required for the loan.  

 When you become a member of our Credit Union, our Insurance Providers offer you double protection for your money. Cuna Mutual Insurance Company acts as our partner in ensuring that not only your loans, but also your savings, are secured at no extra cost to you! In this way, in case of total, permanent disability or death, you and your beneficiaries are guaranteed more security than at any other financial institution!

You become a part-owner of our Credit Union when you open a Shares account. In this way, we say you “buy shares” in the business or you have savings in a Shares account. The Life Saving Insurance guarantees that the amount of shares you buy or “save” in this account is always fully secured. That means, as your savings increase, your insurance coverage increases along with it.

2.     More savings mean more insurance coverage

3.     Members are insured in case of death from natural or accidental causes

4.     Members are insured in case of dismemberment
