Alabama Telco Credit Union recently accepted a distinguished 5-Star Superior rating from Bauer Financial Inc., Coral Gables, Fla.

A 5-Star rating for financial strength and stability is the highest rating attainable from Bauer Financial, which is a nationwide bank and credit union rating firm, and is based on the overall financial condition of the credit union.

Earning a 5-Star rating denotes that Alabama Telco Credit Union is one of the strongest credit unions in the nation. Achieving this designation for five consecutive quarters, like Alabama Telco Credit Union has, is an even higher honor.

“There’s an old adage that says no press is bad press, but if you’ve seen the banking news over the past year or two, you know this isn’t always true,” said Karen L. Dorway, president of Bauer Financial. “That’s why it’s so important today to share some good news, and Alabama Telco Credit Union makes it easy. Alabama Telco Credit Union is a model credit union. You should be proud to call it your credit union.”
