iKiplingeri slideshow features 7 CUs anyone can join
MADISON, Wis. (4/11/12)--An online slideshow on kiplinger.com features "7 Credit Unions Anyone Can Join," and directs consumers to a link for asmarterchoice.org, the online credit union locator tool.

The tool, asmarterchoice.org, also compares average rates and fees at credit unions vs. banks, highlights the latest "good news" on credit unions appearing in the media, and presents real-life comments submitted by people who belong to credit unions. It is presented by the Credit Union National Association and the leagues.

"[Credit unions] tend to charge lower loan rates, pay higher savings yields and 'treat borrowers who are struggling more sympathetically,'" said Stephen Brobeck, executive director of the Consumer Federation of America, in the kiplinger.com article.

The seven credit unions included in the slideshow are:

  • Alliant CU, Chicago;
  • Connexus CU, Wausau, Wis.;
  • Consumers CU, Waukegan, Ill.;
  • Lake Michigan CU, Grand Rapids, Mich.;
  • NASA FCU, Upper Marlboro, Md.;
  • Pentagon FCU, Alexandria, Va.; and
  • Navy FCU, Vienna, Va.
 To view the slideshow, use the link.
