United Federal Credit Union voted favorite financial institution for sixth year
ST JOSEPH, MI (October 24, 2014) — United Federal Credit Union (UFCU) is proud to announce it has been voted number one in the Bank/Credit Union category and tied for number one in the Financial Planning Services category of the annual Herald-Palladium Reader’s Choice Awards.
“We are deeply appreciative of the trust placed in us as the number one financial institution and a number one provider of financial planning services in southwest Michigan,” said President/CEO Gary Easterling. “Our Members and our employees are the force behind this organization and without them this success would not have been possible.”
2014 is the sixth consecutive year that UFCU has been selected as the preferred bank/credit union and this is the second accolade this year for UFCU’s investment planning department. In September, Keith Weber, the program manager of UFCU’s investment department, was inducted into the CUSO Financial Services Hall of Fame. Weber was recognized for his extraordinary level of experience and success. UFCU’s investment program, United Investment Planning, has six advisors serving members in 22 branches in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, Nevada and Arkansas. Investments and services at United Investment Planning are offered through CUSO Financial Services, LP, and are not NCUA/NCUSIF or federally insured, not obligations of the credit union and may involve investment risk.
The Reader’s Choice Awards are given to top businesses in southwest Michigan as voted on by readers of The Herald-Palladium. The Herald-Palladium is a newspaper distributed in the southwest Michigan region serving all or part of Berrien, Cass, Van Buren and Allegan Counties.
United Federal Credit Union has served its Members since 1949 by helping them to build a sound financial future.
