Biggest U.S. Credit Unions by Asset Size

April 22, 2021 | 0 min read

We've found that it's harder than it should be to obtain a current list of the biggest credit union by asset size, so we decided to put it here for easy access. No need to go digging through a database. Here it is.

These numbers come from the NCUA — April 2021. As in prior years, Navy Federal Credit Union, State Employees', PenFed, and BECU are the largest credit unions by asset size.

We have ranked the top 250 credit unions in the U.S. by asset size below. To view more data, check out these other lists of top banks:

How Many Credit Unions Are There in the United States?

In 2021, the NCUA lists 5,098 credit unions in total in the U.S. That's 110 fewer than the total number last year at this time.

  • The average credit union has an average of $286 million in assets. (Compared to an average of $3.5 billion for the average U.S. bank.)
  • The median assets under management is $35 million. (Compared to $230 million for the median bank.)
  • The smallest credit union on the list is Holy Trinity Baptist Credit Union with $21k in total assets.

Did you know that 72% of consumers say they would switch their primary bank if it didn’t connect to their favorite financial app? MX offers open finance APIs to enable companies to do more with financial data. Learn more about why open finance is the future of banking.
