Forbes says that there are 5,000 credit unions with 117 million members in the country. They wanted to find out which one is the best. So they turned to the people that use the credit unions in each state.

"More than 25,000 customers in the U.S. were surveyed for their opinions on their current and former banking relationships...Financial institutions were scored on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five subdimensions (trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services, and financial advice)." - Forbes

In Wyoming, they found that UniWyo Federal Credit Union is the Best-In-State.

“UniWyo Federal Credit Union, like all credit unions, is in the business of 'people helping people,'" President of UniWyo, Dave Krause, said in a statement. "We would not have received this honor without our members and we would like to say THANK YOU for choosing UniWyo! Our members are the reason we do what we do every day.”

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. Today they have two locations in Laramie and a new one soon in Cheyenne.
