  • Mazuma CU in Kansas City, Mo., which paid its members a bonus dividend Dec. 31. The $454.6 million asset credit union's board approved a $930,000 dividend payout. Members received 4% of the interest earned on deposits in 2011 and 4% of the interest paid on loans in 2011.
  • Hanscom FCU, Hanscom Air Force Base, Mass., returned $567,000 to its members at the end of 201l with a loyalty dividend. The dividend represents a 2% bonus on dividends earned and consumer loan finance charges paid during the year by the $919.5 million asset credit union.
