BEAVERCREEK — MONEY Magazine has ranked Wright-Patt Credit Union (WPCU) as the Best Bank in Ohio 2017–2018 as part of its Best “Bank” in Every State November issue.
Using data from Bankrate.com, MONEY evaluated data on fees, interest rates, and account requirements for checking and savings accounts for the largest 90 brick-and-mortar banks, 50 credit unions, and 15 online banks.
According to MONEY, in an era of rising fees, it can be hard for consumers to find a bank that fits all of their needs: convenience, online banking, physical locations, low-to-no-fees, ATM networks, higher interest rates and customer service ratings. MONEY chose WPCU as the best bank in Ohio based on: Offering a checking account with no monthly fee, Access to at least two free out-of-network ATM transactions per month, 340 Co-Op branches in the state of Ohio and MagnifyMoney ranking WPCU’s Mobile App in the top ten nationally – current ranking is second place.
“We are honored to be chosen as the best bank in Ohio by MONEY Magazine,” shared Tracy Szarzi-Fors, Wright-Patt Credit Union’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. “Our top priority is to create a positive impact on the people and communities we serve, and help our members attain financial freedom so they can live life the way they want. This includes offering a lower-to-no-fee checking account to help members manage their money. The MONEY Magazine recognition further exemplifies our dedication to the credit union’s mission of helping people through life.”
WPCU continues to show its commitment to making a positive impact on its members and the community with new products like the CentsibleSpendTM checking account, which helps members more easily manage their spending without the cost of overdraft fees or paper checks.
The credit union was founded on the “people helping people” philosophy that has been around since their beginning in the 1930s. The main objective continues to be helping members become better off financially than they were before, so they can achieve financial freedom and live their life the way they want.
