Nebraska Energy Federal Credit Union, along with the Nebraska Credit Union League and credit unions across the U.S., is a proud supporter of the Credit Union Awareness initiative. This effort aims to create awareness and consideration for over 5,000 credit unions nationwide, ultimately connecting more consumers with credit unions.
The Open Your Eyes to a Credit Union Campaign, created by Credit Union Awareness, was created to raise awareness for consumers when looking for a financial service provider and what it means to be a credit union member.
Some misconceptions about credit unions:
Myth #1: I Can't Join A Credit Union - Credit Unions are member-based. Individuals can join a credit union based on the credit union's field of membership, a common bond between members such as employment, geographic location (live, work or worship within a defined radius of the credit union) or group memberships (credit union partnerships with organizations, schools, labor unions, associations, etc.). There's a credit union for everyone. Click on the Your Money Further link below to find a credit union for you!
