Everyone needs a financial institution to safely manage their money, which leads you to needing an account with either a bank or a credit union. Aside from providing a safe place to store your assets, financial institutions also provide many other benefits, such as a place to cash your checks, receive a loan and to take advantage of the multitude of online money management services. How do you make the decision on whether a bank or credit union is right for you? Let’s take a look at some key financial decision making points, and you decide.
