First Commonwealth is the largest credit union in the Lehigh Valley, with over $550 million in assets, nearly 50,000 members and six branches. They offer the same financial services found at a traditional bank, but with better rates and lower fees. That's because they’re structured differently. They are member-owned and not-for-profit. Instead of earning money for stockholders, they return profits to their member-owners (account holders) in the form of higher dividends on savings, lower rates on loans and lower fees.
