Local Bank Review: Rockland FCU (Mass)

The (4.0%, $50K) RCA was pretty good to start.  The application process is relatiovely easy (online with follow up ID check).  Te account comes with 200 free duplicate checks.  Initially payroll deposit of any amount would meet the requirement, then they changed that at least $100 payroll deposit was needed.  They lower the rate first to 3.8%, then discontinued the RCA offer completely.  We decided to keep the account since they still give us the current 3.25% interest, even without meeting the RCA requirements.  They have high-yield reward saving account that earns 1.8% APY up to $15K (0.9% for balances higher than $15K), but direct payroll deposit of at least $100 is also required. 

Pros

Relatively large/stable CU

Excelent customer service

1.8% APY High-yiled savings

Nice (200) duplicate checks

Relatively low fee for all services (any CU should have such customer-freindly features)

Cons

RCA was discontinued (grand-fathered)

The 2.25% (up to $5K) Smart Saver Account (mentioned by Ken in thier thread) was also discontinued

DO NOT USE THIS CREDIT UNION

Whatever rates they offer, the customer service is so lacking I would lose money before I ever had another account with them.

I was refused a refinance loan because I am on disability even though my income is adequate and I have an excellent credit rating and not a lot debts. I have other income they said could not apply towards this loan. I feel I was discriminated against and am going to contact Ma. Council on Discrimination.
