Member Stories

Headshot of Nathan Huber credit union member

I lived in Edgewater Beach and wanted to contribute financially to a better neighborhood, and I liked the tiny storefront with the “gently used” feel and the diverse staff. I wanted to improve my FICO score, but more importantly, since 2008, I desired to get my hard-earned money out of “too big to fail” mega-banks. The staff has helped me improve my credit score, consolidate debt with reasonable interest rates and acquire a car. It’s also helped me to slow down and consider my spending patterns, thus improving my overall quality of life.

Thanks for helping people in Chicago with their financial needs.

Sincerely yours,

Nathan Huber

We joined North Side Community Federal Credit Union several years ago, based upon knowing the credit unions are a place to help us to save. Over the years of membership, we have attended a credit counseling workshop, credit repair, One on One credit counseling and monitoring our progress. In such a short time, we have repaired our credit, raised our credit scores. We have been able to purchase a beautiful home and vehicles.
North Side Community Federal Credit Union also helps us to stay within our budget and still save. We have been very satisfied with the professional service we have received from Mr. Khalil Um’rani and Mr. Tomas Lopez-Betanzos, as well as others. They have always taken the time to service our needs, each time we come. It is great to be a member of North Side Community Federal Credit Union where you’re not just an account number; you’re a person with a life.
