January 2016
  • The nation’s credit unions increased their loan portfolios by 0.6% in November, less than the 0.7% pace reported in November 2014.
  • Memberships are up 3.8% during the past year due to robust demand for credit, solid job growth and comparatively lower fees and loan interest rates. 
  • Credit union loan delinquency rates fell to 0.81% in November, down from 0.86% one year earlier due to a stronger economy, lower gas prices and double digit loan growth.
