For the record, we are not experts and these are just our opinions derived at by reading and researching the subject. That being said, the difference between a Public Bank and a credit union is an excellent question. As far as we know, you have to join a Credit Union. I have not found anything that says you have to join a Public Bank. There are different types of Public Banks and Credit Unions, so it would depend on where you’re at . There are so many variables that it really is incumbent on you to do your research. We posted some links on our article that answer what public banks are and their advantages. The model we have been most interested in and using for reference is the Public Bank of North Dakota.

Here are some more links to help you discover the Wonderful World of Banking. JK : ) I’m getting giddy from all the research and my brain is starting to fizzle.

To the best of our understanding, Public Banks and Credit Unions both work for the best interest of the members or account holders and generally have lower fees and terms.

Banks and Savings and Loans, on the other hand, are for-profit organizations, are heavily leveraged to make profits, and can then pay dividends to their stock holders. Some would go so far as to say that the Banksters would take everything you have, if given the opportunity, and do it with a smile.
The following link is Oregon’s reason for creating a Public Bank.

I hope this helped. NOW my brain is fried!

Excuse my ignorance of these matters but aren’t credit unions a form of public bank? What is the difference between your public bank and a credit union? Just curious…

Just found another page already set up on FB for Arizona: They seem to have started up a couple of days before I did and are linked in to the mothership already, so I guess I can bail on the stuff I tried to set up. Don’t know why I couldn’t find this before when I searched but I never really wanted to do this anyway…just trying to make sure someone did…
