Today, the NCUA announced today the charter of Thrivent Federal Credit Union, formed through the acquisition of assets and liabilities of Thrivent Financial Bank. This will be the fourth new charter approved by the NCUA in 2012. The previous three included:

  • Community Promise FCU of Kalamazoo, MI (October 2, 2012)
  • Lakota FCU of the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota (August 29, 2012)
  • Internet Archive FCU of New Brunswick, NJ (August 24, 2012)

With approximately $500 million in assets, Thrivent, which is sponsored by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, will become one of the largest faith-based credit unions in the country. They have assured that customers will face limited changes to accounts, services and access (including routing numbers, account numbers, online banking logins, etc.).  The new credit union website is supposed to go live on December 1st.

Thrivent Bank currently offers two different checking accounts as well as savings accounts, money market accounts, and CDs.
