EDGEWOOD, Md., July 7, 2023 – Forbes magazine recognized APG Federal Credit Union (APGFCU) as one of America’s Best-In-State Credit Unions for the fourth year, ranking first place in Maryland.

Each year, Forbes partners with Statista, an independent market research firm, to conduct in-depth consumer interviews across the U.S. to determine the best credit unions in each state. This year, more than 31,000 residents from all 50 states were surveyed on their banking relationships.

"We're honored to be recognized with the top honor in Maryland," says APGFCU CEO Don W. Lewis. "Our focus is on people and empowering them with the financial knowledge and tools needed to build and protect wealth. Keeping our member-owners at the forefront of all we do helps us stand out and rank among the best."

Scores and rankings were based on a 1-100 scale of consumer opinions of overall recommendations and satisfaction with an institution’s trust and transparency, terms and conditions, branch, digital and customer service, and financial advice. Additionally, award winners were determined based on a sentiment analysis of public reviews and ratings from March 2020 through April 2023. Of the thousands of credit unions in the U.S., only 147 earned best-in-state rankings.

APGFCU membership is free and open to everyone who lives, works, worships, volunteers or attends school in Harford County, Cecil County, Baltimore County and Baltimore City. For more information, call 410-272-4000 or visit
