DENVER, CO (June 27, 2022) — Westerra Credit Union has been named as one of the Best-In-Colorado Credit Unions by Forbes magazine for the third year in a row! Following is a link to more information and state-by-state rankings:

Forbes reports that just 3.4% of credit unions across the country made the cut for its best-in-state rankings.

Between one and five banks and credit unions in each state were awarded the Best-In-State designation, based on the number of consumer responses to a Forbes survey in each state. According to Forbes, each bank and credit union on average received completed survey responses from 50 surveys/interviews, which queried consumers on topics ranging from mobile banking ease-of-use to transparency of fees and interest rates, plus the hours and accessibility of bank branches.
