Safe 1 Credit Union was recently awarded an A+ rating by DepositAccounts.com, in their quarterly financial health evaluation of every federally-insured bank and credit union in the Unites States. This honor recognizes Safe 1 as one of the strongest financial institutions in the country, and represents the highest grade given by the organization.

“During times of both prosperity and uncertainty, consumers want to feel confident their financial institution is on solid financial footing,” said David King, President/CEO for Safe 1 Credit Union. “It is a tremendous honor to be recognized by DepositAccounts.com. We would like to thank our staff, Board of Directors and, most importantly, those who bank with us in achieving this recognition.”
