About Baton Rouge Telco

What is a Credit Union?

A credit union is a cooperative financial institution, owned and operated by its members. The purpose of a credit union is to provide competitive rates and services to its member-owners. Credit Unions serve groups that share something in common, like where they live, work, or attend school.

How is a Credit Union different?

  • Credit Unions are owned by people who use the services.
  • Credit Unions exist to serve members - not to make a profit.
  • Profits are returned to members in the form of lower loan rates, higher savings rates, and lower fees.
  • Credit Unions have a volunteer Board of Directors elected by the membership.
