The Benefits of Membership

Customized Analysis of Member Benefits For:

Alabama

March 2011

Prepared by:

Credit Union National Association Economics and Statistics Department


Alabama The Benefits of Membership Credit unions generally provide financial benefits to members through lower loan rates, high saving rates, and fewer fees than banking institutions. The Credit Union National Association (CUNA) estimates that Alabama credit unions provided $182,001,209 in direct financial benefits to the state’s 1,745,915 members during the twelve months ending March 2011. These benefits are equivalent to $104 per member or $198 per member household

(1).

Estimated total benefits of credit union membership are calculated by accounting for differences in credit union and bank pricing. Specifically, average credit union savings account yields, loan interest rates and fees are compared to average bank savings account yields, loan interest rates and fees. The interest rate differences are then applied to respective average credit union loan and savings balances. Fee differences are weighted and applied to credit union non-interest income to obtain the total estimated benefits arising from fees. The per-member and per-household benefits delivered by Alabama credit unions are substantial. But, these benefits are averages. Mathematically, that means the total benefits provided are divided across all members (or all member households) - even those who conduct very little financial business with Alabama credit unions. Consider this: Financing a $25,000 new automobile for 60 months at a Alabama credit union will save members an average $271 per year in interest expense compared to what they would pay at a banking institution in the state. Further, loyal members - those who use the credit union extensively - often receive total financial benefits that are much greater than the average. Alabama credit unions excel in providing member benefits on many loan and saving products. In particular, Alabama credit unions offer lower average loan rates on the following accounts: new car loans, used car loans, personal unsecured loans, first mortgageadjustable rate, home equity loans, credit cards loans. Alabama credit unions also pay members higher average dividends on the following accounts: regular savings, share draft checking, money market accounts, certificate accounts, IRAs.
