NCUA data showed the nation’s credit unions increased their number of branches last year and in 2021, but the gains were less than half of the 449 branches and other locations lost in 2020.

The NCUA showed the nation’s 4,856 credit unions had 21,748 branches, headquarters, operations centers or other locations as of Dec. 31, 267 fewer than they had at the end of 2019, representing a 1.2% drop.
