    RATING METHODOLOGY

    NerdWallet’s overall ratings for banks and credit unions are weighted averages of several categories: checking, savings, certificates of deposit or credit union share certificates, banking experience and overdraft fees.

The stars represent ratings from poor (one star) to excellent (five stars). Ratings are rounded to the nearest half-star.
