UniWyo Federal Credit Union was named 2019’s best credit union in Wyoming by Forbes last week.
There are over 5,000 credit unions across the nation with 117 million members; only 182 credit unions were awarded the Best-In-State Credit Unions for 2019. UniWyo received the only title for Wyoming. To determine the Best-In-State Credit Unions, Forbes partnered with Statista, a marketing research firm, surveying more than 25,000 U.S. consumers about their banking relationships.
UniWyo Federal Credit Union was chartered as a credit union in December 1953, when nine University of Wyoming employees opened their accounts with $5 each. UniWyo is a member of the National Credit Union Administration with accounts federally insured to at least $250,000.
