Great Credit Union, Wonderful Personal Service

Velocity has been around Austin for more than 60 years.  Love the friendly and knowledgable employees.  You are treated like a VIP here, not a "number."

Not Competative These Days

I have been with Velocity Credit Union for more than 30 years. The employees are great with wonderful customer service. I wonder why Velocity is paying such low CD, share, money market rates to their members. They use to be very competitive. I liked the fact I could do all my business with them, but that has changed and I am looking for new opportunities.
