US banks

Traditional banks offer savings and checking accounts, mortgages, personal loans and credit cards. Some are listed on the stock exchange and owned by shareholders. Others are mutual banks, which are owned by the bank’s members. All of them are FDIC-insured, which means your money is protected by the federal government for losses up to $250,000.

Credit unions

Credit unions are owned by their members. Rather than being run to provide profits for shareholders, credit unions are run to benefit members. Credit unions are communities, and will generally require you to meet certain qualifications to qualify. For example, some credit unions are only open to teachers or to employees of a specific company.
