I had a backup account at Allegacy that was basically dormant. Over time, their monthly fees dropped the balance to a negative ($6). Their reaction? A $5 PER DAY fee because my account was in the negative. It wound up costing me $150+ to close this account because they didn't notify me for 27 days!! Ridiculously poor "customer" service, poor response from the person I spoke with at the branch. DO NOT recommend.
I was not happy with my experiences with Allegacy. We had a car loan arranged through a dealership, which we paid off early. Allegacy insisted at the payoff that we invest an additional $200 to keep the account open for future use. We were not planning on borrowing any more at that time, but we followed their advice and made the deposit. We immediately ran into issues. Allegacy immediately charged us a "fee" which brought the account below $200. Three months later we got a statement charging us a "service fee" for not keeping the $200 balance in the account. I made a personal visit to the Allegacy office to get this corrected. I thought this fixed the problem.
Two years later I have closed the account. Allegacy billed me for a $5.00 dormancy fee every three months, so as of July 1, 2012 my account had shrunk to about $182. At that point I have closed the account.
I have been a member of two other credit unions for over 50 years and this is the only credit union that has charged me to keep my money. Needless to say any interest I accrued was offset by the fees charged. I would recommend that you not use Allegacy for your credit union.
Allegacy is an excellent cried union because they still have the personal touch that I like to have where I bank. They also waive the fee if you know someone, you just have to tell them and they look up their name. When I opened my account, the gentleman who helped me spent a lot of time chatting and getting to know me. The actual opening of my account took minutes and I received my first statement and debit card within a couple days. I was so impressed with this as well as the customer service for the internet. I had a problem and they were extremely helpful when I had to call. There website is clean and easy to navigate. I have been very pleased with all my interaction with Allegacy.
