Have you ever walked into a bank and come out with more questions than you originally went in there with? ... You probably have, and it's a frustrating experience that can leave you feeling like no one has your back. The good news is you have choices.

Credit unions have been around a while and have stepped up where regular banks fail to meet your needs. With more than 100 million members and growing, credit unions have helped many, like you, jump-start a financial future that’s right for them. What about you? What does your future look like?

Maybe you haven't ever considered joining a credit union for your banking needs. Well, let me tell you why you should think about it!

Why Credit Unions are the Better Choice

Life gets crazy sometimes, but your finances don’t have to. A trustworthy credit union makes that part of your life much easier. Friendly experts and consultants (like the ones at GOLD) will listen, advise, and assist you in achieving your financial goals. We’ll walk you through those big financial steps—like buying a house—and all the paperwork that comes with them. Banking with a credit union means someone has your back, and you get a clear vision of next steps for financial success.

With a credit union, the focus is on you. Helping you meet your financial goals, guiding you toward reaching your dreams, assisting you with becoming successful in whatever way you define it. At GOLD, you’re not a customer or a number; you’re a Member—part of a community of everyday, hard-working people expecting a bright future.

Being a Member at GOLD isn’t the same as being a member of your local warehouse-store. Your Membership makes you an owner of GOLD. Our owners? They’re the only group of stakeholders we report to. The fees and high loan rates at the big banks are there to profit the bigwigs. Credit unions are not for profit. We offer higher investment returns and lower loan rates because your success is our success. And fees? While banks make a significant portion of their profit off fees, we keep them to the bare minimum.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a bank that makes your money work for you—a place where the staff is actually on your side? Well, it’s not a bank you need at all; you need a credit union. You need GOLD. We’ll connect with you on your terms, your way. You can go further and faster with us, shifting the course of your financial future.
