Closing A Penfed Account

Monday, August 12, 2013 - 11:49 PMPentagon Federal Credit Union - Details
I'm trying to close my PenFed account.  I didn't see anything about it on their website, so I contacted them.  They said I had to call a particular number, from a Class A DSN phone line.  I had to google that, and it's a military line.

Has anyone had problems closing an account with them before?

I have a few more years to go before my CD with them matures but I have stored the account closing info in my directory.  Don't want to run into problems I can avoid by not knowing what to do when I need the info.  Thanks for the post.

Pen Fed was very helpful closing  accounts and transferring them to my accounts when my husband passed. They helped the children with the correct forms, helped them fill them out and mailed the papers to them to sign and mail back. Very helpful.
