Forbes magazine recently named United Community Bank, based in Blairsville, as the best bank in the state. For it’s inaugural Best-in-State Banks list, Forbes surveyed more than 25,000 U.S. banking customers about their bank and credit union relationships. Questions focused on customer satisfaction, trust, terms and conditions, digital and branch services, financial advice and overall recommendations. Only 124 banks throughout the country made the Forbes list.
United topped the list of Georgia banks, which also included Synovus and SunTrust. As the state’s third largest bank, United has 65 branches, including more than 30 in Metro Atlanta and a significant number in North Georgia as well as the coastal region.
Forbes has recognized United for the past five years as one of the 100 Best Banks in America. In addition, J.D. Power has ranked United first in customer service in the Southeast for five years.
