Wakota Federal Credit Union - SOUTH ST. PAUL, Minn. (August 8, 2016) - The communities of South St. Paul, Inver Grove Heights, West St. Paul, Lilydale and Mendota Heights, readers of the Southwest Review, voted Wakota Federal Credit Union (WFCU) as the “Best Place to Bank” for 2016.

“It is an honor to be voted ‘Best Place to Bank’ in our community” stated Mary Matheson, President and CEO of Wakota Federal Credit Union. “This recognition validates our efforts to be Dakota County’s financial institution of choice.” At Wakota FCU, members are more than another account number; they are the member- owners of the credit union. WFCU wouldn’t be what it is today without the dedicated volunteer Board of Directors and the loyal membership. “I believe our unique and engaged staff, extensive services and personalized products are what sets us apart from the competition” said Patty Koran, Director of Finance at WFCU. “We try to make a difference in the individual lives of our members; they know and appreciate that.” Wakota FCU strives to be the bridge to a successful financial future.

About Wakota Federal Credit Union

Our name was changed in 1997 to Wakota Federal Credit Union as we became a community and federally chartered credit union. The name Wakota is derived from a bridge in South St. Paul that connects Washington and Dakota Counties.

Wakota FCU has grown considerably since its inception and now services all of Dakota County providing all the “Big Bank” services with that small home town feel.
