Corner Stone Credit Union has been serving our members and the community since 1952. The credit union philosophy of cooperative ownership, democratic principles, and service to members set credit unions apart from other types of financial institutions. Like other credit unions, Corner Stone Credit Union is owned by its members. Earnings, after payment of expenses and allocation of reserves, are returned to the members in the form of dividends and interest. Your initial deposit to open a share account establishes your membership and makes you a part-owner in the Credit Union. Corner Stone Credit Union's services are designed to meet members' financial needs and are priced fairly and competitively.
