How to Find and Join a Credit Union

In the past, joining a credit union meant you had to be part of a company or organization in order to qualify as a member.

These days, there are countless credit unions with the sole eligibility requirement being that you live within a local geographic area.

The best resources for finding a credit union are ASmarterChoice.org and FindACreditUnion.com.

You simply fill in your zip code or enter any organization you're affiliated with, and you see all the credit unions available within your area. Many credit unions have web sites where they list their car loan rates.

Joining a credit union is very simple. In most cases, you just have to open a savings or checking account with a $10 minimum balance.
