Lehigh Valley credit union named tops by Forbes Magazine

Forbes Magazine has named First Commonwealth Federal Credit Union of Bethlehem as the No. 1 in-state credit union in Pennsylvania.

First Commonwealth ranked first on the Forbes 2019 Best-In-State Credit Union list. The credit union has eight branches in the Greater Lehigh Valley.

The magazine recognized 182 credit unions, nationwide, out of the more than 5,000 credit unions in the country.

Three Pennsylvania credit unions were included on the 2019 list with American Heritage Federal Credit Union of Philadelphia and PSECU of Harrisburg also being honored.

Forbes said the financial institutions were scored on overall recommendations and satisfaction of customers, as well as five other factors — trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice.

To celebrate its top ranking, First Commonwealth will be having member appreciation days July 2 at each of its branches.

The branches will be serving cupcakes and popsicles and a team will be interviewing customers about their banking experiences to create a commemorative video.
