Does Not Offer ACH

Posted by: |

Does not offer ACH - you must wire in money and they charge $3 for incoming wires.  Outgoing wires are $12.  Reduces their APY somewhat.  Not great service in my opinion.

No Beneficiaries

The biggest drawback here is that they do not provide for designating a Beneficiary on your IRA! That would be one type of account where it is most important. Not possible on the basic Savings either. They require a copy of your Social Security card to join - first time I had to use the actual card in my life! Their accounts are OK but for all of them you can do better elsewhere. No advantage to open an account here.

Identity Protection Offered By Credit Union

Posted by: |

Recently I was informed by credit union provider of identity protection my coverage had been cancelled. When I ask the representative with Identity Secure who authorized the cancellation I was told to contact the financial institution where I purchased the service. I contacted the credit union and spoke to a representative regarding the cancellation without my authorization and why the fee for service was still being deducted from my account. The representative would not provide the information I requested. I commend the credit union for refunding the fees, however I believe there is a communication problem between the credit union and identity protection provider.

GREAT MEMBER SERVICE!!
