Credit Unions in NYC
This list is not meant to be exhaustive—if you do not see a credit union for which you are eligible, check www.ncua.gov, or ask the HR manager at your employer if your work makes you eligible for a credit union membership. Many churches have also formed credit unions (too numerous to list here—check with your religious leader).
Credit Unions are not owned by their sponsor organization (e.g., NYU or NBC), but are independent legal entities owned 100% by their member/depositors. One person, one vote.
