7 17 Named to Forbes’ Best Credit Unions List

7 17 Credit Union was named to Forbes’ list of Best-In-State Credit Unions for 2022. Of the 5,041 Credit Unions in the United States, only 171 or 3.4% made the cut.  7 17 was one of only three of Ohio’s 241 credit unions to earn the distinction.

The ranking is based on consumer surveys conducted by Statista working in conjunction with Forbes. Consumers were asked to provide an overall satisfaction score for their financial institutions and answered detailed questions focused on six facets of relationship: trust, terms and conditions (including reasonable and transparent fees), branch services, digital services, customer service, and financial advice.

“We are particularly proud of this distinction because it is based on feedback from our members,” said Gary Soukenik, President and CEO of 7 17 Credit Union. “We take great pride in serving as a trusted, financial partner for our account holders as reflected in our strong, 65-year history of growth.”  

This distinction falls on the tail of 7 17 Credit Union recently being ranked a top 100 Credit Union in the United States and number one in Ohio by S&P Global Market Insights for the second year in a row.

7 17 Credit Union is the largest credit union in Northeast Ohio with 13 branch locations and more than 100,000 members. Anyone living or working in Trumbull, Mahoning, Columbiana, Portage, Stark or Summit Counties is eligible to open accounts with 7 17.
