For decades, an important financial institution for many working families was the neighborhood credit union. Serving as both a depository and a loan office, the credit union provided a means of saving for retirement, a college education or a rainy day, as well as, loans for a home, new car or dream vacation.

Today, credit unions are either federally chartered or chartered by their individual state governments.

Proactive supervision and examinations ensure that the Credit Union Section maintains a credible and responsive regulatory environment to assure the safety and soundness of credit unions for the benefit of all credit union members within the State of Illinois.
