Forbes names Cumberland County CU as best in state

Cumberland County Federal Credit Union was named Best-In-State Credit Union by Forbes Magazine in their annual review of Best-In-State Credit Unions and Banks for the second year in a row.

Forbes enlisted Statitsa, an independent research firm, to survey more than 25,000 customers in the U.S. about their current and former relationships with their financial institutions. The credit unions were scored based on the respondents’ overall recommendation and satisfaction, as well as five other categories including, trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice.

“We are proud of our employees and thank our members for their trust in us. It is an honor to receive this distinction two years in a row,” President and CEO Scott Harriman said. “Listening to our members, providing great service and keeping banking simple is what sets us apart.”

Established in 1954, Falmouth-based Cumberland County Federal Credit Union is the eighth-largest credit union in Maine.
