Master Credit Union Lender List

Master Credit Union Lender List

It was only a matter of time before the original master lender list got too cluttered, so the next spin off we will be building out is a complete table of as many of the 5,400 credit unions in the United States that we can get data off of. We will also be doing a dedicated table on Elan Financial soon as well on this page considering they back so many credit unions.

Bookmark, share, enjoy! Share your datapoints with us if you have some!

If you are looking for big banks, you want to check out our Master Credit Lender List here.

NOTE: March 2023 update
Now that Silicon Valley Bank and 3 others have collapsed, the Fed has made it clear they will NOT bailout smaller banks, just the big boys so keep that in mind with your Credit Union selections- Make sure they have at least FDIC insurance if not more.

Baxter Healthcare- BCU

  • You get “recommendations” from the start, you can double dip on hardpulls for 30 days to get PLOC or PLs. When the loan officer calls you to finalize everything, you can negotiate your CL and apply for other products on the same hard pull.


  • We have limited data on the site still on NFCU because we were hit with a Trademark Infringement takedown notice in July 2022 and complying with that.
