Massachusetts was what we’d now call an “early adopter” of credit unions. Its first one, St. Jean's Credit Union, located in Lynn, opened its doors in 1910. St. Jean's is also America's oldest state-chartered credit union.

Today, Massachusetts has 184 credit unions with total assets of $32.7 billion. Seventy of them have assets of $50 million or more.

Massachusetts’ credit unions employ 5,749 full-time workers and 999 part-timers. In addition, 2,535 people serve on their boards of directors and in other volunteer positions.

About 2.5 million Bay State residents belong to a credit union – that’s 38.5 percent, or more than a third of the state’s population. By joining their number, you’ll become part of a movement that puts people above profits – and you’ll be on your way to a healthier financial future.
