For the third consecutive year, Connexus was named as the Runner-Up for Best Credit Union by Kiplinger. Kiplinger’s 2019 publication, “The Best Bank for You,” identified the top picks among national, regional, and internet banks and credit unions.
“Receiving this recognition from a highly respected publication such as Kiplinger really underscores our continued commitment to delivering industry-leading products and services to our members,” Connexus President/CEO J. David Christenson said. “We’re constantly striving to best serve the needs of each and every one of our valued member-owners, and being named the Best Credit Union runner-up is a testament to the effort that our Connexus employees put forth to exceed expectations every day.”
What Criteria Was Used for Ranking
Kiplinger selected the winners and runners-up from a field of 73 institutions, evaluating checking accounts, savings accounts, and share certificates (CDs). Kiplinger also looked at fees for monthly maintenance, ATM transactions, overdraft protection, money transfers, yields on interest-bearing accounts, and availability of features such as peer-to-peer transfers and identity theft protection.
