Wings Financial Credit Union

Your dreams have Wings

Wings Financial was originally chartered by 7 Northwest Airlines employees who recognized the value of a cooperative financial institution where members help each other succeed financially. In this cooperative spirit, Wings is a not-for-profit financial institution where members are also owners. All earnings are reinvested in the credit union in the form of higher savings yields, lower loan rates, fewer and lower fees – as well as in-person, mobile and online service options.

Today, Wings gives flight to over 300,000 members’ dreams worldwide. While members often remark that Wings has a small community feel, we have the size and scale to offer superior pricing and service. At over $6.7 billion in assets, Wings is Minnesota’s largest credit union and ranks among the nation’s top 40 credit unions.
