Focused on Your Financial Wellness

We're like a bank, only better. Better Rates. Fewer Fees. Trusted Advice. Fresh Approach. Respected Locally. Accessed Globally. High Tech. Human Touch.

Elements Financial is a credit union. What's a credit union? Glad you asked! A credit union is a not-for-profit financial institution that's owned by its members. That means we offer all the same products as a bank, but our profits are returned to our member-owners in the form of reduced fees, higher savings rates and lower loan rates.

About Elements

As a non-profit, member-owned credit union, Elements Financial has the ability to do some pretty amazing things for our members. While offering all the products, services and technologies of a conventional bank, our unique business model allows us to return profits to our member-owners in the form of reduced fees, higher savings rates and lower loan rates.

Dependability and innovation: these twin concepts work in harmony to help Elements deliver financial wellness to members. Our practical financial advice is dependable enough to have earned us a ranking among the top 4% of credit unions in the U.S., with more than 100,000 members and $2.0 billion in assets. Our spirit of innovation spurs us to constantly search for better and more convenient amenities for our partners, such as holding financial workshops at their workplaces and online.
