People want to know if their money is insured like it is at a bank. I don’t know if this is because of the perception that credit unions aren’t as old as banks (credit unions date back to 1852!), or if it’s because they seem (and often are) so much smaller than banks.

It can be difficult to be approved for a regular credit card (revolving unsecured credit) when you don’t... Read More
