Credit Union FAQs
How is a credit union different from a bank?
A credit union is a cooperative organization owned entirely by its members and operated for the benefit of all who belong. Credit unions provide a wide range of financial services—just like other financial institutions. The difference is that credit unions are not-for-profit financial organizations whose earnings are passed on to members in the form of lower loan rates, fewer fees, and added or improved services.
Does the credit union provide the same services as banks?
Yes—and more. We offer a full range of options including lifetime membership, family membership, financial education, savings and investment accounts, checking choices, all types of loans, credit cards, and mortgage options. Plus, we offer convenient locations, lots of ways to do business with us, and friendly, reliable service.
How much does it cost to join?
There is no fee to join We Florida Financial. Simply open your savings account with a minimum $5 deposit. This represents your share of credit union ownership. As long as your $5 stays on deposit, you're eligible to benefit from any credit union service. But it's always yours to keep.
Can my family join?
Yes! When you open your We Florida Financial account, your immediate family and household members (spouse, children, stepchildren, siblings, parents, grandparents, and anyone in your household) are eligible to join the credit union.
How can I do business with you if there's not a branch nearby?
