The CUA difference

The CUA difference

We’re Credit Union Australia. We offer responsible financial, health and insurance solutions to around 500,000 Australians, making us the country’s largest credit union. We’re proud to be an award winning one too.

As a mutual, we were created by members for members and we care for them through the changes and challenges in their lives.

Our Story

Our story began back in 1946 when we saw an opportunity to give Australians a fairer deal. We challenged the banking status quo at the time by providing responsible and affordable lending.

Through a series of mergers with like-minded credit unions and community groups, we created the powerful force that is CUA today. This growth and success lets us reinvest in our business, deepen our relationships with our members, champion great causes, and build stronger communities.

We’ve changed a lot over the years - and today we offer much more than just lending - but we’re still driven by a passionate and genuine desire to enrich our members’ lives.

That’s the CUA difference. Isn’t it time you discovered it for yourself?

Delivering Life Rich Banking to our members

We think it’s the small joys that make life rich. Like the odd weekend away. Or fish and chips because it's raining. But these are usually the first to go, just to afford the bigger things.

Whatever stage you’re at, we're here to help our members enjoy financial breathing space through a range of products and services.

We help you manage your money in a range of ways, whenever and wherever that happens to be.
