How are credit unions different from banks?

Credit unions are an alternative to traditional for profit banking institutions. The main difference between a credit union and a bank is “form versus function.” Both may function in the same way by providing deposit and loan services but they are formed differently in many aspects.

A Credit Union A Bank
Not for profit banking For profit banking
Owned by its member customers Owned by outside stockholders
Volunteer Board of Directors Paid Board of Directors
Members vote for the Board of Directors Customers do not have a say in the Board of Directors
Deposits are federally insured by the Federal Government Deposits are federally insured by the Federal Government
State chartered credit unions are regulated by the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation State chartered banks are regulated by the Vermont Department of Financial Regulation
