Credit unions are chartered to serve particular groups of people. In the case of the Somerset Federal Credit Union, membership is open to anyone who lives or works in Bristol County. Each member becomes part of the credit union family and an owner who has one vote at the annual meeting.
In 2010, the credit union earned a 5-Star rating for financial strength and stability from Bauer Financial, an independent financial rating firm that has been analyzing and reporting on the nation's financial institutions since 1983. The rating is based on the overall financial picture of an institution, with 5-Star being the highest rating given.
The Kinnane Group was approved to provide real estate appraisal services to the credit union. The Kinnane Group has a long standing history of providing quality real estate appraisal services with high performance standards that embraces technology initiatives while demonstrating goegraphic competency.
The Kinnane Group is in its 53rd year of operation as a leading real estate service provider to the southcoast area of Massachusetts and east bay region of Rhode Island.
