    Credit unions are another banking option that exist and the majority of them are backed by the FDIC. Many of the unions are specifically for members of certain groups, such as teachers or military service members. Others are simply available to anyone who wishes to be in a credit union. Benefits include better interest rates on loans and higher payouts on CDs.

The show continues to find topics that are of interest to Americans and shed some light onto the topics so people can learn.

    Credit unions date back to the 1850s and started in Germany. Since then, they have spread around the globe. The member-owned financial institution can vary around the country and therefore it is always important for individuals to look and see what the various benefits are before making the decision.
