Account Policies

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.
