30 Year Member

Posted by: spersall | Sep 28, 2016

I became a member when this institution was the Riverside County Employees Federal Credit Union. The name has changed, we've merged with a few other credit union, but I continue to get good service. When there have been problems, and I can count them on one hand in30 years, a phone call or a quick trip to a branch is all it's taken to clear it up. Checking accounts are free with direct deposit. The ATM access is fairly good, stand alone network ATMs in grocery stores, 7 11, etc. Web access is good. I do wish they had a mobile app for Windows, but they've done fairly good with Android and iPhone. All in all I'm not changing banks anytime soon.

10 year customer honest opinion

Posted by: CaptainM | Oct 15, 2015

I joined Altura around 2006 because CU's (in general) are great to belong to since they are not for profit. I enjoined the small town feel of the branch I went to and being recognized by the few employees working at the branch less about a mile from my house. I even opened up savings accounts for both of my daughters at the same branch. It was convenient and had 2 ATM's with no lines....ever. I was disappointed when my wife's bank started doing mobile deposits and Altura did not.

After a few years of banking with Altura CU, they closed the branch close to me (one of 3 in the valley where I live). They then closed another branch, leaving only one branch on the far end of the valley from me. To serve a valley with a population of around 100k residents, this final branch had only one ATM. Even after adding a second ATM, there are often long lines. They started offering mobile deposits recently but it was "too little, too late". I recently switched to another national bank and am very happy there.

Overall, Altura is not a bad place to bank and the customer service (employees) is great. But overall, compared to many banking institutions I have done business with over the past 25 years, it is just average.

Closing Of Branches And Poor Website For On-Line Banking

Posted by: Anonymous | Jan 19, 2012

Closing the Temecula and Murrieta branches has left customers isolated and dependent upon the old branch ATMs and the on-line banking system. Now, the Temecula bank ATM has been boarded up, and the on-line banking since January 11 does not allow Verizon customers to log-in to do business with the bank. The bank says that it is Verizon's fault - speed of the internet service - but Verizon technicians find that the speeds are no different than they were a week ago. In today's market, this is poor business process for customers. Hopefully, Altura will do a better investigation of the program and will provide solutions and communication with customers with the options and results.
