Hiway Credit Union named to Kiplinger’s Best Credit Unions

ST. PAUL, MN (June 30, 2021) — Hiway Credit Union® (Hiway) was recently named to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance list of Best Credit Unions for the third consecutive year. This year, Hiway was awarded with the third-place Bronze in the national category. The publication highlighted Hiway’s Hi Yield Checking Account as well as the credit union’s competitive rates for Hiway’s savings accounts, money market accounts and certificates.

Kiplinger’s bases their honoree list on data from Informa Research Services while factoring in a credit union’s fee structure, minimum-balance requirements and rates of return on checking, savings and certificate accounts. Hiway’s Hi Yield checking account offers a very strong 2.02% APY when members meet certain requirements. 1

“For 90 years, Hiway Credit Union has existed to improve the financial lives of our members,” said Hiway President/CEO Dave Boden. “For a national renowned publication such as Kiplinger’s to again recognize us for our effort and that we provide value in a variety of ways gives credence to why we do what we do.”
