Save better. Borrow smarter. Learn a Lot!
Wright-Patt is a member-owned and operated not-for-profit financial cooperative. We join members together, pooling financial resources to run a strong, efficient operation, while meeting the needs of all. Our sole reason for existence is to serve the financial needs of our member-owners. Plus, because we are a member-owned cooperative you even elect our volunteer Board of Directors!
Our success depends on the commitment of our members
The more members that use their credit union, the stronger the cooperative becomes. That gives us the ability to return more value to our members. Unlike banks, earnings are returned to members in the form of higher dividend rates, lower interest rates on loans, and lower fees. In fact, one independent study estimated that Wright-Patt provided over $26 million in direct financial benefits to its members in 2009 by charging less for loans and paying more for deposits, as compared to for-profit banking institutions in the state of Ohio*. These benefits are equivalent to $286 per member household, and more than $1,200 for those member households who do a majority of their financial business with the credit union.
Studies consistently show that credit union members are more satisfied with the service they receive than bank customers are. Isn't it time to join with us to create a stronger credit union, and realize all the benefits for yourself? Apply for membership at Wright-Patt Credit Union today!
