Wonderful Service

I have been a member with Dover Federal Credit Union for over 5 years now and I must say that I am very pleased with this institution.  They have wonderful representatives from the tellers who will help you with your everyday transactions to the member services reps who are so knowledgeable about all the products they have to offer from mortgages to signature loans.  If you are in the neighborhood and are looking for and honest bank with high quality standards, then Dover FCU is for you!

Nice bank

The only type of account i have in this bank i a savings account but i am fully satisfied with my experience with them. They do not charge any fee to have an account with them which is a plus. All you need to open an account is a $5 minimum deposit. They are lacking in the mobile/online experience though. They do have an app but it seems very buggy to me. Overall the customer service is good as well. The only downside is that you can only talk to an actual person on the phone during business hours. If i had to rate the bank over all it would get a 4 out of 5 from me.
