Patriot Recognized as a 2023 Forbes Best-In-State Credit Union

Patriot Federal Credit Union has been ranked #3 in Pennsylvania among all credit unions, in the 2023 Best-in-State Credit Union report recently released by Forbes. The Forbes report recognized Patriot as one of America’s best credit unions in Pennsylvania, along with 146 other credit unions from across the Nation. 

The 2023 Best-in-State Credit Unions results were determined from a survey conducted by Forbes and industry ranking provider Statista Inc., of approximately 31,000 U.S. residents who were asked financial institutions where they had a checking or savings account. 

The financial institutions were evaluated on factors such as customer service, quality of financial advice offered, transparent and reasonable fees, ease of using their website, branch location services offered and overall level of trust.

“Our entire Patriot family is honored to receive this very special and significant recognition,” said Ron Celaschi, President/CEO of Patriot. “We greatly appreciate the support that so many of our members expressed to Forbes in their survey. Their expressed confidence in how we serve our members, is a source of pride for every Patriot team member and volunteer.”
