5-Star Compass Community Credit Union building trust since 1951

EUREKA, CA (August 4, 2022) — Compass Community Credit Union has once again earned a top (5-Star) rating from BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Credit Union and Bank Rating Firm. This marks the 49th straight 5-Star Rating from BauerFinancial. Working together with its members toward common objectives has proven Compass to be a valued and committed partner.

To earn Bauer’s 5-Star rating, Compass soared through Bauer’s in-depth, independent analysis of its financial condition. And that’s not all. Compass also earned the added distinction of “Exceptional Performance Credit Union”, a designation reserved solely for those credit unions with a minimum of 40 consecutive 5-Star ratings.

“When we say Compass Community Credit Union has been building trust, we mean just that. Through hard work, Compass has built a level of credibility over time, both with Bauer and with its members,” commends Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “Members can have a sense of security knowing that their credit union has reached this level of confidence.”

“We have been helping our members and local community since 1951,” said Compass Community Credit Union CEO, Ray Litchfield. “We strive to provide a superior banking experience with products and services designed to meet the everchanging needs of our members. I believe we’ve positioned ourselves with a competitive advantage by assembling an exceptional team that goes above and beyond, building lasting relationships.”
