Members 1st named #1 Credit Union in Pennsylvania by Forbes and Statista

Credit union recognized for second consecutive year on America’s Best-In-State Credit Unions 2022

MECHANICSBURG, PA (June 22, 2022) — Members 1st Federal Credit Union was recently named the #1 credit union in Pennsylvania as part of America’s Best-In-State Credit Unions annual rankings. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.  

“We are humbled and honored to be included on this distinguished list for the second consecutive year,” said President & CEO George Nahodil. “The additional recognition of first in the state of Pennsylvania is a huge milestone for us and further reinforces our commitment to delivering unparalleled experiences for our members. We are so grateful to our members for their trust in us and to our associates for their continued dedication to our member-owners.” 

The survey was sent to approximately 26,000 consumers in the U.S. who were asked to rate credit unions they have or previously have had checking accounts with. A full assessment was completed on each credit union being evaluated in the areas of trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services, customer service and financial advice. This year’s winners were chosen and identified after the independent survey results were calculated. 

Across the country, 171 credit unions were awarded a place on the list, which equates to about 3.4% of all credit unions nationally. Survey scores received by financial institutions around the U.S. determine where each credit union lands on the list. Last year, Members 1st was second on the list, with this year’s survey results bringing the credit union up to the first spot.  

“Congratulations to all of the credit unions from across the country who were recognized on the Best-In-State list, especially those in Pennsylvania,” added Nahodil. “We appreciate all that you do to live out our joint mission of people helping people.” 

Since its humble start in 1950, Members 1st Federal Credit Union has grown to a full-service financial institution with more than half a million members and over $6.5 billion in assets. The credit union offers a full suite of financial tools and services through its network of 60 branch locations throughout Central Pennsylvania as well as its robust digital banking and call center channels.
