The CUA difference

We’re Credit Union Australia

We offer financial and insurance products to over 500,000 Australians, making us the country’s largest credit union. We’re proud to be award winners.

As a mutual, we were created by members for members and that’s why members are at the heart of everything we do.

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?

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