I have had nothing but bad service from this credit union since I moved my money there in April. Needless to say I will be going elsewhere. Our retirement check stub came in the mail on Friday August 31. Because this bank requires direct deposit we did not receive that check and have no money in our account as of September 1st. The bank says there is nothing that can be done until Tuesday September 4th due to the holiday. If I did not have direct deposit I would have my money. I was told when I had direct deposit if the 1st fell on a Sunday or a holiday the money would be in the bank before that date. Now they get to hold onto my money for 4 each days while I celebrate my birthday tomorrow at home with no money and unable to do anything. Thanks a lot.
member for over 10 years and WAS happy, 2012 totally different story....
I am moving my money to a bank that doesnt try to offset its looses by passing the buck to its customers.
***** BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE ****** any and every chance they get to ding your account for money they will, even if it means holding your deposits till after all your debits and checks go through so they can charge you 34 dollars a pop. thats even with direct deposit...
UHCU can bEEEEEEP me !!!!!!
I was surprised to read the other 2 reviews. I have had pretty good experiences with this credit union. Now I will preface this review with this. I have never had a problem with overdrafts or fees as I keep at least $8K in the account.
Granted, the interest rate is not the best. I remember getting 6% interest on my checking account up to $25K. Those were the days. Making $100+ a month in a checking account was great. I have stayed for the service though. All the people at the bank recognize me when I come in. This is quite a different experience that with every other bank I have dealt with.
In response to the direct deposit issue. I have my paycheck direct deposited and I see the money a full day earlier than most other banks. Now I will say this. I took off a star due to the long hold time I have seen on a couple of checks. The hold time was not outside what was legally allowed, but it was a bit inconvenient.
I recommend United Hermitage on a regular basis. They provide a very welcoming banking experience, and I genuinely feel they appreciate my business.
