Why Become a Member?
A credit union is much more than a typical bank.
While a bank is owned by stockholders who are in the business to earn a healthy return on their investments, our credit union is a not-for-profit, cooperative financial institution owned by its members. Business decisions at Winthrop Area FCU are driven by what is in the best interests of the membership. As a credit union founded to help under-served individuals, we continue to believe that access to financial services for the under-served is an integral part of our mission. With membership open to persons who live, work, worship, or attend school in, and businesses and other legal entities located in Kennebec County, we are committed to the credit union philosophy of “people helping people.”
