The app is available for Apple iPhones and Android phones, and can be downloaded in both the iTunes and Android online stores.

The app shows the nearest credit union locations and ATMs on a map or in a list, and app users can also map a route to their choice of credit unions using google maps. The app also provides basic contact information and branch hours, and access to the NCUA's homepage and the agency's social media sites. Users can also subscribe to the agency's email alert system, NCUA Express.

"More and more consumers, and especially younger people, are increasingly getting their information from social media outlets and demanding mobile banking services. The CU Locator app is just the latest example of how NCUA is connecting credit unions with younger audiences," NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz said. "I encourage all credit unions to link to NCUA's CU Locator to help consumers get access to credit union information when on the run," she added.
