Here is an excerpt from the Forbes article that explains their methodology.

America’s Best-In-State Banks and Credit Unions were chosen based on an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 25,500 U.S. citizens spread among all states.

The survey was conducted using an online access panel. Each participant was asked to name all banks / credit union’s where he/she has or previously had a checking / savings account. Participants had to evaluate banks and credit unions regarding general satisfaction and recommendation as well as Trust; Terms & Conditions; Branch Services; Digital Services and Financial Advice. For each criterion a detailed battery of questions was asked.

In every state the banks and credit unions with the highest score have been awarded. The length of the top lists in every state varies between 10 and 1 (depending on the amount of evaluations collected and the score).

In total, 149 unique banks and 182 unique credit unions were awarded as the Best-In-State Banks / Credit Unions 2019.

Mahalo CU Hawaii Members... It is because of you that we were able to receive this honor!
