The study measured six key areas of the institutions including trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services, customer service, and financial advice.

In California, ten credit unions received recognition as Forbes’ Best-in-State Credit Union with SchoolsFirst FCU ranking number one. Additionally, of more than 5,000 credit unions nationwide, only 3.6% were awarded the designation.
