5-Star Compass Community Credit Union – It’s where you belong

EUREKA, CA (July 28, 2023) — BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Credit Union and Bank Rating Firm, proudly acknowledges that Compass Community Credit Union has earned its highest, 5-Star rating for 53 consecutive quarters. That’s quite a feat. Having maintained its financial strength and stability through the past decade has also earned Compass the distinction of “Exceptional Performance Credit Union”. This designation is reserved solely for those institutions that have earned and maintained a 5-Star Rating for 10 years (40 consecutive quarters), or longer.

“As a member and an owner, you need to trust that your credit union will be there for you when you need it,” notes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “We’ve all seen what can happen. Financial institutions that are not well-rounded can run into trouble in a very short time. BauerFinancial’s star-ratings take into account a broad range of current and historical data to minimize that risk. That’s one way Compass Community Credit Union’s continued 5-Star status differentiates it from other financial institutions that you may have heard about in the news.”

“At Compass Community Credit Union, we have an unwavering commitment to our members that’s over 72 years strong. In times of uncertainty, our mission is to provide members with the stability they have come to know and expect from us,” said Compass Community Credit Union CEO Ray Litchfield. “We have been supporting the people in our local communities since 1951.
