OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (June 30, 2022) — WEOKIE Federal Credit Union has been recognized as the #1 Credit Union in the state of Oklahoma by the Forbes ‘2022 America’s Best Credit Unions in Each State’ list.

According to Forbes, the credit unions on average received 50 completed surveys/interviews designed to ask consumers about the hours and accessibility of their branches, the ease when utilizing mobile platforms, and transparency regarding interest rates and fees. Between one to five credit unions in each state were awarded the Best-in-State title based on these responses.
