North Side Community Federal Credit Union is a community development credit union founded in 1974. Unlike mainstream banks and credit unions, our niche is serving the 'unbanked' low and moderate income people. By offering affordable loans and low-cost checking and savings accounts, we are an alternative to the payday and predatory lenders that pervade low income communities and strip wealth from residents.
Upon completion of the online course a financial counseling/assessment session must be completed by phone or in person to receive the certificate of completion. Sessions last one to two hours. Membership in the credit union is not a requirement to receive education or counseling.
