UCU Named One of “America’s Best Credit Unions” by Forbes

ORONO, Maine (July 17, 2020) – University Credit Union (UCU) is honored to be named one of the best credit unions in Maine and the United States, according to Forbes’ third annual list of the America’s Best In-State Credit Unions.

In developing the list, Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to independently evaluate credit unions in each state, based on overall recommendations, member satisfaction, and five sub-dimensions: trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice. To determine the best of the best, researchers surveyed almost 25,000 credit union members in the US for their opinions on their current and past relationships with each credit union. Statista’s full methodology can be found here.

Only 3.5% of the more than 5,200 credit unions in the nation made this year’s list. Of the more than 60 credit unions in Maine, UCU is one of just five to make the list this year.

“We love hearing feedback from our members, congratulatory or constructive, because it keeps us always striving to be better,” said Renee Ouellette, president and CEO of University Credit Union. “To know our members trust us and feel their expectations are being exceeded and preferences respected is deeply gratifying and really a credit to the team we have here at UCU.”

Not only is UCU one of Maine’s best credit unions for members, it is also one of the best places to work! UCU is a four-time Best Places to Work in Maine honoree in the medium employer category.
