Credit unions need a charter number, which is a license to operate. This will be applied for by the Credit Union and received from either the National Credit Union Administration or a state credit union regulator. The federal government and state governments have different chartering rules and requirements.
If a Credit Union has been allocated a new Charter number for a new reporting period, the two numbers will not have been merged within the Peer Analysis system for historical periods.
The information within Peer Analysis is shown by charter number that is downloaded from the NCUA Call report data.
