SEFCU is a so so bank. Have had an account with them 23 years. Up until a few years ago only Federal Employees could bank there, mostly were military. Now anyone within the state can open an account. They have grown, opened several branches and even built a new Main Bank. They have a hugh employee turn over, you never see the same staff working. There are a few upper level employees that have been around for a while. Not a friendly bank, you don't get that home town feel when you walk in.
They put a 10 day hold on the all checks deposit. I have a couple of other accounts with other banks in the area. I once made a deposit with check funds from one of my other bank accounts and they put a 10 hold on that check! They also posted an automatic draft to my account that was not mine. I could see that maybe a banking staff member might have posted the draft by mistake; but they did not want to fix the problem over the phone they wanted me to come down to the bank and fill out a form. I did get them to email me the form and allow me to fax it in. The form put the blame on everyone but them, that I was certifiying that it was a fraudulent transaction that either someone was using my banking information (stolen) or the merchant was scamming me. It was a small transaction and it was cleared up by the bank within 5 working days.
