Restricted To Illinois*******

Posted by: renatl | Mar 10, 2018

The rate looks good at 5% for a cap of $2,500 but I just found out that even if you make a donation it is only for residents of Illinois. This is not a Nationwide Credit Union.

Additional Factors: Institutions with a small asset base, a short operating history, or negative return on assets can represent an instability risk beyond what their financial ratios indicate. First Financial CU (IL) has a relatively low asset base.
