Awards and recognition show Star One among the top credit unions, year after year.
Through consistent hard work and a persistent focus on helping members, Star One has received many prestigious recognitions and awards over the years.
Star One Credit Union received the Member Benefits Top Performance Award for the fifth consecutive year from the Credit Union National Association (CUNA). CUNA is the largest national trade association in the United States serving nearly 6000 credit unions owned by more than 100 million consumer members.
Star One ranked first among credit unions nationwide in providing its members the highest average financial benefits by charging less for loans, paying more on deposits, and charging fewer or lower fees.
According to CUNA's most recent analysis, Star One’s average annual benefits per household amounted to $1,832. These benefits are calculated as averages, loyal members who use the credit union extensively often receive total financial benefits that are much greater than these averages.
