Raise your hand if you’re among the 74% of Americans with only “some or very little confidence” in banks. Keep ‘em up if you still keep your money in an aforementioned bank.
Despite the fact that credit unions don’t take risks with your money, charge lower fees, get slightly higher interest rates on deposit accounts, and often provide better customer service, fewer than one-third of Americans use them. Crazy, right?
