Rating Summary

Memorial Credit Union keeps members informed with a financial health newsletter and education information about investing in IRAs, and more. This full-service Houston credit union has plenty to offer its members.

One slight drawback we found is the limited number of ATMs and we did not find on their website any note about being a member of Allpoint or another ATM network, which could limit member options. For this reason, we’ve awarded them a 4-star rating.

They remain one of the top-ranked credit unions in Houston and one to consider banking with in 2020-2021.
