BELLINGHAM (July 8, 2022) – WECU recently earned the number-two ranking on the Forbes Best-in-State Credit Unions for the State of Washington.

“Being named one of the top credit unions in our state is a fantastic honor, and we are grateful to our membership for their trust in us,” said Jennifer Kutcher, President & CEO of WECU. “This recognition reflects our employees’ ongoing commitment to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our members and the communities we serve.”

Forbes enlisted the help of Statista, a marketing research firm, to survey nearly 26,000 U.S. citizens from all 50 states on their banking relationships. Respondents answered a detailed battery of questions focused on six separate facets of the relationship: Trust, terms & conditions (including reasonable and transparent fees), branch services, digital services, customer service and financial advice. Of the 181 Washington-based credit unions included in the study, only 10 made the final list, with WECU attaining number-two status.
