Delta Community Named a Top Credit Union for Consumer-Friendly Banking

    NerdWallet Recognizes Delta Community Credit Union for Its Commitment to Consumer Banking

    ATLANTA (June 1, 2014) – Delta Community Credit Union (www.DeltaCommunityCU.com), Georgia’s largest credit union, announces it has been recognized by personal finance website, NerdWallet, for its consumer-friendly products and services. Delta Community Credit Union was named a top credit union in the Southeast region in NerdWallet’s Consumer Banking Index.

    “Delta Community is a top credit union in the Southeast region for a reason. It has a range of low and no-fee products and provides easy access options,” says NerdWallet analyst John Gower. “It’s clear that creating a positive banking experience is a top priority.”

    NerdWallet’s Consumer Banking Index assesses banks and credit unions based on seven criteria: Free Checking, High-Yield Savings, Free Online Bill Pay, ATM Access, Branch Access, Mobile Access and Customer Service. These criteria were selected by a survey of 1,000 U.S. adults as key considerations when choosing a financial institution. Spring 2014 marks the second semi-annual release of this index which includes 150 of the nation’s largest banks and credit unions. Receiving high marks for each category indicates Delta Community Credit Union’s superior value to consumers.

    “We are honored to be recognized by NerdWallet’s Consumer Banking Index as a top credit union in the Southeast,” says Eve Nimkar, vice president of marketing and communication for Delta Community Credit Union. “We’re continually investing in our people, processes and technology to ensure our members have access to attractive banking products and services using the channels they prefer whether in the branch, on their phones or a PC.”
