Nusenda Credit Union, the largest credit union by membership in New Mexico, was named among the 
Best Credit Unions to Work For by Credit Union Journal, the nation’s leading provider of news and information for the credit union community. The publication ranked Nusenda No. 17 (No. 6 in credit unions with assets over $1 billion) in its September 2018 issue; it is the only New Mexico-based credit union to crack the publication’s top 50 list.

“We believe that healthy and happy employees are the most important ingredient to provide an elevated banking experience – and to be a trusted financial advisor – to our 190,000-plus member-owners,” 
said Terry Laudick Nusenda’s president/CEO.

“Our benefits and programs are structured to allow employees to fulfill their potential, while taking time to spend with family and focus on personal wellness. They are truly our greatest asset.”

Nusenda Credit Union’s family-friendly policies and benefits include:

  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance for the employee and family members at gold-level health reform standards; as well as MD Live telemedicine, which allows employees and family members to speak with local, board-certified doctors by video or phone 24/7.
  • Flexible Spending Accounts and Health Savings Accounts. HSAs come with employer-provided financial contributions.
  • No-cost employee assistance counseling programs for employees and immediate family members.
  • 100% employer-paid life insurance, short- and long-term disability insurance, and accidental death/disbursement insurance.
  • Immediate PTO accruals from first day of hire, nine paid holidays yearly, and paid birthday leave; as well as critical illness, bereavement, jury/voting, and medical leave.
  • No-cost employee wellness program designed to promote healthier employee lifestyles; achieved goals decrease monthly insurance premiums paid by employees. Nusenda also offers a complimentary, on-site fitness center, and discounted memberships at area gyms.
  • Tuition reimbursement for full- and part-time employees.
  • No-cost, on-site personal development seminars and training sessions, as well as career-path counseling.
  • 401(k), employer-matched retirement plans, plus a 100% employer-paid pension plan.
  • Family-friendly and fun holiday parties, group picnics, and more.

The survey recognized credit unions nationwide based on merits such as employee satisfaction, employer benefits, strong company ethics and values, and employee’s confidence in the company’s direction. 


Earlier this year, Nusenda was named a Family-Friendly business for the second year by Family Friendly New Mexico, a statewide project developed to recognize companies that have adopted policies that give New Mexico businesses an edge in recruiting and retaining the best employees. Additionally, it was nominated by its employees as an Albuquerque Journal Top Workplace for the sixth year in a row; and Best Credit Union by Albuquerque Journal readers for the fifth straight year. 

Rewarding those we serve.
