100 MILLION MEMBERSHIPS REACHED AT CREDIT UNIONS
2.85 million people joined a credit union between June 2013 & June 2014; The fastest membership growth since 2000
Credit unions have reached and surpassed 100 million memberships nationwide - equating to one in every three Americans - The MD|DC Credit Union Association (MD|DC CUA) - the premier regional trade association for credit unions in the state of Maryland and the District of Columbia recently announced.
In addition to reaching 100 million members, credit unions have also saved their members millions of dollars in savings. Here are a few key facts:
- The 146 credit unions across Maryland and the District of Columbia saved their two million members $146 Million over the last 12 months when compared to other financial institutions.
- These benefits are equivalent to $70 per member and $133 per household in MD and DC.
- Financing a $25,000 new automobile for 60 months at a MD or DC credit union will save members an average of at least $140 per year in interest, compared to what they would pay at a banking institution in the State.
"The 100 Million member milestone is one that shows that consumers are turning to credit unions as their trusted financial institution in record numbers, said MD|DC Credit Union Association President/CEO, John Bratsakis. He added that credit unions continue to place member interests first which is at the heart of what it means to be a member owned financial cooperative." "In today‚??s challenging financial marketplace the value of "People Helping People" has never been more important for consumers than it is today. The credit unions in Maryland and the District of Columbia are proud to play an important role in the financial wellbeing of so many consumers and will continue to earn that trust in the years ahead!"
To celebrate this significant milestone, and to show what 100 million looks like, the industry has developed a website where Credit Union members, staff and officials from across the country can post selfies to show they are "1 of 100 million." Help us celebrate YOU and be counted. To submit a picture, visit www.americascreditunions.org. When posting to social media, make sure to use the hashtag #100MM.
