SANTA ANA, Calif. – July 2020 – 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 Credit Unions in Each State list. Orange County's Credit Union is ranked as number five in the state of California, making the list for the second consecutive year.

"Earning a spot on this prestigious list for a second year in a row is a testament to our continued commitment of prioritizing people. Our business philosophy is that action is taken with people in mind first, not the bottom line, and we're proud that we are delivering on that promise," shared Shruti Miyashiro, president and CEO of Orange County's Credit Union. "I am beyond grateful for our incredible team of Associates who go above and beyond to provide exemplary service to all of our Members."

According to Forbes: "Member 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 high levels of satisfaction."

Forbes partnered with market research firm, Statista, to survey nearly 25,000 individuals in the U.S. regarding their opinions on their former and current banking relationships. Only the top 3.5% of the nation's 5,200 credit unions rank in the sought-after list from the leading American business publication. Financial institutions were scored on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice.
