Teachers Federal Credit Union is an amazing credit union. I have been using them for most of my money for the past 5 years. The rates are excellent, and the fees are extremely low. They have CDs which seem to be fairly average, and a money market account with decent yeilds. One of the best features of this bank is the low minimum, it was $1 when I first started, and I believe it still is. Still, if you keep at least $5000, they give you great benefits like free checking. The service is pretty good, they have always been nice and courteous. They are allied to a large number of other credit unions, so it's easy to get your money wherever you are, and there are a number of free ATMs. It's not just for teachers anymore! I heartily recommend Teachers, especially if you are closeby to a branch. If you go to Stony Brook University, you definitely should have an account at teachers.
Teachers Federal Credit Union is a great bank and institution. Their tellers are always friendly and professional and I have never had a bad experience going into one of their many branches throughout Long Island. Teachers products are not only incredibly competitive but also very comprehensive covering all of your personal financing needs. I would highly recommend this company to both family and friends.
As I was a student in Long Island, where this credit union is operating, I was in a financial hardship and did not have access to credit due to the fact that I had no credit history. Major banks were not willing to work with me in this regard. I approached a TFCU branch and explained my situation. They were able to help me by offering me a low credit limit card with a nominal monetary deposit. This came in hand, and after 6 months of on time payments, they contacted me and offered to refund my deposit and increased my credit limit 2-fold.
What was also great about TFCU is that they had a representative operating on campus! Along with a 24/7 ATM machine that charges no fees to use it. I recommend TFCU for anyone in my situation who is just starting out.
