Since our founding in 1938, Wings Financial Credit Union has focused on giving flight to its members’ financial dreams through exceptional service and financial value.
Chartered by seven Northwest Airlines employees, our founders recognized the value of a cooperative financial institution where members help each other succeed financially. In the 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, and fewer and lower fees, as well as in-person, mobile and online service options.
Today, Wings gives flight to over 250,000 members’ dreams worldwide. Eligibility to join Wings has grown over the years to include those who live or work in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, the Seattle-Tacoma metro area, the Detroit, MI metro area, the U.S. aviation industry, and those who become members of the Wings Financial Foundation.
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 $4.8 billion in assets, Wings is Minnesota’s largest credit union and ranks among the nation’s top 40 credit unions.
At our core though, is the people that make Wings what it is today. Our success comes from loyal members who trust us with their financial business each day, and our employees who work hard to provide each member with outstanding service.
