Our Core Values & Principles
Is Deseret First membership right for you?
Credit unions are unique from banks in multiple ways. Deseret First membership is reserved for those who share the same values we do, providing an ideal and trusted relationship. Our members also enjoy fewer fees and better rates. Sounds pretty great, right? Here’s how you can qualify to join us.
Why choose a credit union?
Credit unions such as Deseret First are not-for-profit cooperatives. This means we are owned by the very people we serve— people like you. We seek the best return for our members, not to enrich a small group of shareholders. Our members also vote for a democratically elected volunteer Board of Directors. It’s democracy in action— for the people, by the people!
Credit unions return earnings to their members. How so? We do this in the form of higher rates on deposit accounts, lower interest rates on loans, and little to no fees. Additionally, credit unions across the country work together in cooperation to provide value and easy access to patrons, regardless of which credit union you belong to. As a DFCU member you’ll be able to conduct your business at any one of these 28,000 ATMs or through over 5,600 shared branches.Find Locations
