Many CUs keep their fees at a minimum for members.

Credit unions were designed to be kinder than other financial institutions. They embrace people who have been turned down elsewhere for an account or loan, doing whatever they can to help the person get on their feet and reach their life goals. Serving the financially underserved – the minimum-wage worker, the immigrant family, the single mother slash college student – is part of a credit union’s DNA.
