SANTA ANA, Calif. – Aug. 5, 2019 – Orange County’s Credit Union, a Santa Ana-based financial services provider with more than 116,000 Members, has been named one of America’s best credit unions in Forbes’ Best-In-State Credit Unions list. The coveted list ranked Orange County’s Credit Union as number three in the state of California.
“It’s a great honor to be recognized as one of the best credit unions in the state by Forbes,” shared Shruti Miyashiro, President and CEO of Orange County’s Credit Union. “I’m so proud of the incredible team we have – our Associates continuously provide exemplary service and this recognition is a direct testament to the passion and integrity with which they serve our Members every day.”
According to the Forbes website, “Members-only credit unions typically have lower fees and offer better interest rates than traditional banks, and the nonprofit model where the members are the owners puts the customer first, resulting in higher levels of satisfaction.”
With more than 5,000 credit unions serving 117 million members nationwide, only 182 qualified for a best-in-state recognition based on surveys. Forbes partnered with market research firm, Statista, to survey more than 25,000 people in the U.S. for their opinions on their former and current banking relationships. Consumers were asked 20 questions about their financial dealings, and financial institutions were scored on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as trust, terms and conditions, branch services and financial advice.
