When it comes to banking, it’s always better to work with a financial institution that has your best interest in mind. At First Financial, we don’t have customers, we have members. Meaning, our community is fully owned and operated by our members. Simply put, we care about you and putting your financial dreams first.
If you’re considering switching banks or are interesting in joining First Financial, here are some of the top reasons to become a member.
Better rates and lower fees
What exactly is a credit union? It’s like a bank, but better. At a credit union, you belong to and own part of the financial institution. And since we’re a not-for-profit, we don’t pay our stakeholders as other banks do. Instead, our profits go back to you in the form of lower interest rates and helpful products. We work with our members to provide customized loans and personalized services too. Whether you’re shopping for auto loans, starting a savings account, opening a credit card, or buying a home, we’re here to help!
Exclusive member promotions
At First Financial, we reward our members with promotions and deals that help them save on loan payments, tax filing, mortgages, and more. Additionally, we offer virtual seminars aimed at educating individuals on financial management and retirement. This is all part of our promise to make your financial wellness our first priority!
Community matters to us
We’re proud to be part of the Monmouth and Ocean County communities and actively support area businesses, individuals, and families through a variety of initiatives. The First Financial Foundation, for example, assists charitable organizations through classroom grants, scholarships, and more. We’re also committed to supporting our community by participating in donation drives and fundraisers.
