For the second year in a row, Long Island’s Jovia Financial Credit Union was named by Forbes Magazine as one of the top credit unions in the state based on member satisfaction and recommendation scores.

The Westbury-based Jovia was the sole Long Island area credit union to make the magazine’s third annual “America’s Best-In-State Credit Unions” list, and one of only five in the state to be honored. The four other credit unions in the state are headquartered in Central and Upstate New York.

Last year, Jovia was also ranked third in New York State, and the only one servicing Long Island in Forbes’ rankings.

Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to survey more than 25,000 people who were asked to rate credit unions at which they have or previously have had checking accounts. Participants made recommendations regarding overall satisfaction; they also assessed credit unions in the following areas: ‘Trust,’ ‘Terms & Conditions,’ ‘Branch Services,’ ‘Digital Services,’ and ‘Financial Advice.’

Overall, 182 credit unions across the country qualified for the final list, based on their overall scores. The results were announced by the magazine today.

“For the second year in a row we are honored to be rated so highly by those we serve, our members,” said John Deieso, President and CEO of Jovia. “It’s extremely rewarding to make the Forbes list – and to be the only area credit union to do so for two consecutive years – as it is a direct reflection of the effort, commitment and professionalism displayed by our Jovia team. Our goal has always been to be our members’ most trusted partner when it comes to their banking needs and interest. And I think this recognition from Forbes is proof of our success.”
