In the broad scheme of things it may not matter, but now that the major political party presidential tickets appear set, this can be reported: Of the four candidates, only presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden belongs to a credit union.
In fact, he belongs to two credit unions.
Presidents, vice presidents and candidates for those offices must file financial disclosure documents, which are then made public. While the presumptive Democratic vice-presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris of California has not yet filed her disclosure as a candidate, she filed a similar document as a member of the Senate.
President Trump filed the longest financial disclosure document this year—78 pages. And while he has many banks accounts, none are at credit unions.
Vice President Pence’s disclosure is much shorter, but it appears he is not a member of a credit union. He does list a relatively small bank account at a “U.S. Bank,” but the name of the financial institution is not listed.
Harris’s disclosure document does not list a credit union membership.
Biden, on the other hand, is a member of the Senate Federal Credit Union, as well as the New Castle County (Delaware) Employee Credit Union.
