Greenville, SC (June 25, 2020)   For the second year, global media company Forbes Magazine has ranked Greenville Federal Credit Union among its 2020 America’s Best Credit Unions list for South Carolina.  See full list.

Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to produce its third annual look at the Best Credit Unions in Each State. Nearly 25,000 customers in the U.S. were surveyed for their opinions on their current and former banking relationships.  Of the 5,236 credit unions nationwide, just 3.5% made the list. 

Forbes said that credit unions were rated and scored on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five additional factors: trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services, and financial advice. 

 “This ranking is a testament to everything that our credit union does to take care of our member owners.  It takes everyone on our team working together with a member service mindset and a singleness of focus,” Paul Hughes, President and CEO of Greenville Federal Credit Union. “To find ourselves among this group of large and worthy credit unions in South Carolina and across the country is an affirmation of our members’ continued support and loyalty, and our employees’ dedication to outstanding service.” said Hughes.
