Can someone recommend a good resource on moving off of corporate banking and to more socially responsible alternatives, like credit unions?
In particular, curious about how one would get and evaluate the alternatives. Both for everyday checking account type stuff and for retirement savings (eg alternatives to Vanguard?), ideally.
* CU co-op shared branching is a thing (thanks @elplatt for this tip). It is nice to join a CU that participates in this, as it gives you more possibilities if you care about physical branch access. Locator here: https://co-opcreditunions.org/locator/
* From recommendations on here and online, https://alliantcreditunion.org kept coming up as a good option. For SF Bay Area folks, https://www.firsttechfed.com also keeps coming up as recommended.
* Didn't find much about retirement savings, yet.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
