The reports categorize data according to several key parameters, such as asset size and region, enabling readers to reference compensation data from similar credit unions. The reports provide complete compensation data including:

  • Base pay
  • Bonuses and incentives
  • Perks and benefits
  • Executive retirement plans

For credit unions with $100 million+ in assets, the 2015-2016 CUNA CEO Total Compensation Report states an average annual increase of 4.5% for CEO salary. The report also found that 75% of CEOS at credit unions in this asset range earned some kind of incentive or bonus pay by the end of 2014.
