Using Major Bank Practices

Is Idaho Central Credit Union a non-profit credit union or a major bank?

For years I've belonged to two other credit unions. Recently joining ICCU for the mear convenience of it. They're right down the street. I'm slowly moving my other credit union accounts to this new one at ICCU.

Last month I split my once a month retirement check into the 3 credit unions. For the moment, the ICCU account is mainly used to cover my mortgage. Which is due on the 1st. That is also when my Federal Paycheck are supposed to be posted.

My retirement paycheck shows up at my other two (my orginal) credit union accounts two business days before the 1st. Always have. And is available to use.  If the 1st comes on a Monday, those funds show up in my account on the Thursday before. If there is a holiday on Monday, and the 1st is on Tuesday, those funds are deposited and available once again on the Thursday before.

NOT AT ICCU! They will not allow access to the funds until the "POST" date on Monday. As I recall this is the reason I moved from those major banks decades ago.

This weekend is a case in point. It's December 2012. The 1st falls on Saturday. Friday Nov 30, I walked into the branch and talked to a future "Sepford Wife" behind the counter and asked why do my other credit unions have the funds available Thursday Nov 29th while ICCU doesn't?

And worst, since December 1st falls on a Saturday, it won't show up in my account until Monday the 3rd. That's 5 days!  To add insult to injury.....my mortgage is still due on the 1st. If not paid, it will show up as LATE.

Banks have been doing this old trick for a hundred years. They're allowed to loan 4 times that deposit amount on hold and in turn make interest on it.  A couple of days doesn't seem like much, but it millions! 

Simply, while that deposit is on "hold", they're making money on it.  And any overdrafts that may happen while those funds are on "hold" will  be  charged  to  you.   

Is ICCU a non-profit credit union owned by the customers?

WOW. I'm reconsidering my options now. 

When questioning a new credit union, ask detailed questions..........  If they give you an answer that has "POST DATE" in it,  .......run. 

Privacy Violation

I have had several vehicle loans through ICCU and really enjoyed the service. Until yesterday when an employee at the Nampa branch released my personal information (date of payment due and date of payment made) to someone who is NOT on my account nor related or married to me. I immediately called the manager with my panicked concern. She assured me it would be handled promptly. The employee was merely reprimanded and then today again spoke with this person regarding my account. The manager tried to assure me that my privacy is very respected. My answer? "Clearly!" I am very disturbed by not only the marked lack of privacy but also their lack of concern in properly dealing with this employee who would be better suited to working in the food service industry than in any career related to privacy. Very disappointed in the Nampa ICCU.
