U.S. map showing the decline of credit union branches around the country.

Credit unions in California and New York have announced expansion plans this month, even while the number of branches fell last year.

Branches have been declining among banks for several years, but the trend hit credit unions last year.

A 12-month decline in branches became evident after NCUA released third-quarter data in December, and its March 4 release of fourth-quarter data showed the trend continued.
