CEFCU recently received a five-star "superior" rating -- the highest rating available -- from Bauer Financial, an independent organization that analyzes financial institution performance.
Bauer Financial rates credit unions based on regulatory compliance, quality of assets and several other factors. A superior rating marks CEFCU as a safe and financially sound credit union.
At the end of 2015, CEFCU held assets totaling $5.3 billion. CEFCU serves more than 314,000 members. It runs 20 central Illinois member centers and three more in Santa Clara County, California. It also manages a financial center, a website, the Money Center 24 ATM Network and the surcharge-free CO-OP ATM Network.
CEFCU's savings plans are federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), a U.S. Government agency.
