MyCUsurvey.com National Member Research Reveals Credit Unions Have Less Appeal for Young
New Customer Satisfaction Survey Provides Member Satisfaction Benchmark for Credit Union Performance Against National, Regional, and Same-Size Metrics
The latest survey revealed a direct correlation between the age of credit union members and customer satisfaction. According to the findings, there is a 30 point different in satisfaction ratings between older members (over age 65), and younger members (under age 30); older members are just more satisfied with their credit unions.
The survey also showed a strong correlation between overall member satisfaction and the frequency of visits to the local branch. Members who visit their branch at least once a week demonstrated 10 points higher satisfaction than members who visit a branch less frequently, and 14 points higher than members who never visit their local branch.
And the survey also revealed that newer members are not nearly as satisfied with their credit union compared to members who have been customers for some time. The survey showed a 15-point spread in satisfaction ratings between those who had been members for one year or less, and those who belonged to the credit union for 10 years or more.

It’s clear that credit unions need to find a way to attract younger members and get members to visit their branches for a more personalized banking experience in order to cement the member relationship.”
MyCUsurvey’s benchmarking data measures six key areas, including overall satisfaction, willingness to recommend, interior branch satisfaction, exterior branch satisfaction, employee satisfaction, and service-level satisfaction. The survey is also broken down into three classifications:
