Awards and recognition show Star One among the top credit unions, year after year.
Through consistent hard work and a persistent focus on helping members, Star One has received many prestigious recognitions and awards over the years.
Once again, the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) honored Star One with the Benefits of Membership Award for providing the highest direct financial benefits to its members.
CUNA estimated that Star One provides $82,569,368 in direct financial benefits to its members during the twelve months ending December 2021. These benefits are equivalent to $1,507 per member household. CUNA also added, since these benefits are calculated as averages, loyal members who use the credit union extensively often receive total financial benefits that are much greater than these averages.
