The Credit Union Difference

At a credit union, there are no "big suit" shareholders making the calls. Instead, credit unions have a member-elected volunteer Board of Directors to guide them.

Raiz follows the credit union philosophy of “people helping people.” Meaning, our profits are returned back to you in the form of high dividends, low fees, low rates, community development, and more. Feel secure when you bank with a credit union, your deposits are insured for up to $250,000 with the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).
