All Around Excellent Credit Union

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.
