This is the sixth year the Best-in-State Credit Unions list has been presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. Forbes and Statista evaluated credit unions based on two sources of information:

  • An independent survey: About 26,000 consumers were asked to rate credit unions at which they have or previously have had checking/savings accounts. Participants made recommendations regarding overall satisfaction and assessed credit unions in the following areas: trust, customer service, branch services, digital services, financial advice and terms and conditions.
  • Publicly available reviews: For each credit union in each state, a sentiment analysis approach of publicly available online text reviews and ratings was applied.
