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 Member Benefits Performance Award for providing the highest direct financial benefits to its members.
CUNA estimated that Star One provides $147,666,735 in direct financial benefits to its members during the twelve months ending March 2019. These benefits are equivalent to $3,005, the highest benefits ever reported, 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.

Star One was awarded the highest financial rating by IDC Financial Publishing, Inc.
IDC ranks credit unions using its proprietary methodology and regulatory reports submitted to the Federal Government. The "Credit Union Financial Profiles" identifies several financial ratios, assigns a weight factor to each based on its relative importance to the health of the institution, and then combines the overall view into a numeric summary rank.
IDC has a remarkable track record of being able to identify deteriorating or improving performance many months, and sometimes years, before it becomes apparent to less-sophisticated ranking companies. www.idcfp.com

Please remember that Star One employees will never call you to verify or ask for your personal information.
Hang up immediately if someone claiming to be a Star One employee asks for any banking information—such as your Online Banking login information, account numbers, card PINs, or one-time passcodes.
A fraudster may try to reassure you that it's OK to share your information—please hang up, it's not OK.
Several Star One members have received phone calls from a person claiming to be a Star One employee—with a caller ID forged to look like a Star One phone number—and whose goal is to gain access to members' bank accounts online.
