KEMBA Financial Credit Union Is a Member Owned Cooperative

KEMBA Financial Credit Union Is a Member Owned Cooperative
Like our local retail food cooperatives, KEMBA and other credit unions are not in business for the sole purpose of making a profit for their shareholders.  If their banking services earn a profit, then those extra dollars go back into the business to give member owners lower costs for services and higher interest rates than their for-profit competitors.  Click here to see a chart that compares their interest rates with competitors on checking, savings accounts, CDs, Money Markets, etc. KEMBA has been a partner in the SOLE Coalition and a business member of Simply Living because we share a common goal to keep our dollars local and recirculating in the community. KEMBA and other credit unions only serve their members and/or specific geographic areas. If you would like more information about KEMBA banking services, contact Vincent Neal at 614.729.1412 or email

FACT: Nearly 75% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, with little to no savings available in case of an emergency.

FACT: 46% of all American workers have less than $10,000 saved for retirement.
