Safe and Trusted, For You

Sep 10, 2021

CEO MessageAs your credit union, we’re committed to being a safe, trusted place for you to keep your money and take care of all your financial needs. While we often speak to this commitment, our Members and communities have been sharing this message better than we ever could.

For the second year in a row, RCU has been named to Forbes’ Best-in-State Credit Unions as one of the top credit unions in California. Consumers were surveyed and rated their financial institutions on trust, digital services, financial advice, branch services, terms and conditions, and overall satisfaction. RCU ranked 2nd in the state among credit unions. Of the more than 5,000 credit unions in the U.S., only 138 were recognized as top credit unions. Serving your best interests is our mission, and we live this mission every day by building trust, offering sound advice, and providing you with the services and tools you need to thrive financially.

We’re honored to be recognized in a national publication like Forbes, but even more meaningful is the appreciation we receive in our local communities. Readers of numerous local papers—including the Press Democrat, Marin Independent Journal, Sonoma Index-Tribune, Bohemian, Pacific Sun, and the Napa Valley Register—have repeatedly voted RCU as “Best Credit Union” or “Best Bank,” for several years in a row. And NorthBay biz readers have voted us “Best Company to Do Business With in Sonoma County” eight times. Knowing that so many people in our community have faith in our team and the services we provide is truly humbling, and it motivates us to continually explore ways we can make your banking experience even better.

RCU is consistently ranked as one of the healthiest credit unions in the nation by Glatt Consulting, Weiss Ratings, and Bauer Financial, which means our financial performance is strong and your money is safe with us. So even when times are tough, you can have peace of mind knowing we’re here for you—and further peace of mind knowing your funds are federally insured.

We don’t take your trust in us for granted. We value your trust and your loyalty, and our team works hard every day to make sure we’re delivering the right services for your unique financial needs. We care about your financial well-being, and we’re always here to help.

Best regards,
