Auto Insurance

I went through DATCU for Auto Insurance. The experience was pleasant at first, and I found decent rates and decided to go with them.  After being with them for 6+ months, they decided to change my address to an old address and add members to my policy whom I do not live with.  I sent an e-mail stating such, and after not receiving any correspondance there after assumed that it was not an issue. Later in the mail I received notice that my rate went up due to having underage policy holders on this vehicle.  I did not even live at the location at the time this policy started.  I am still waiting for resolution on this issue.

The New Way To Bank

I am not sure I am ready to jump on the credit union band wagon. This particular experience left me asking more questions than hen I started. If we walk into a place of banking with 3 or 4 questions and walk out with 10 more (and felt rushed through the first set), do we really want to consider this new way of banking? I am not sure I do. At least with this particular place I think they have a lot going on they want you to find out down the line.

Both FDIC and NCUA consider capitalization levels of banks and credit unions to be of high importance. Higher capitalization allows for a greater buffer when cover loans that may fail in the future.
