Forbes names top CUs in each state

on "June 27, 2019 8:51 am"

There are more than 5,000 credit unions with 117 million members across the U.S. Members-only credit unions typically have lower fees and offer better interest rates than traditional banks, and the nonprofit model also puts the customer first, resulting in higher levels of satisfaction.

But to get to the bottom of whose customers have the highest opinion of them, Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to produce our second annual look at the Best Credit Unions in Each State. More than 25,000 customers in the U.S. were surveyed for their opinions on their current and former banking relationships. forbes

Financial institutions were scored on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five subdimensions (trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice).
