A Great Non-Profit Financial Institution!

Posted by: |

I have enjoyed my membership in America First CU! I have always been treated with curtesy and addressed as a member, not just an account number. If I have questions about CDs and Retirement instruments I can speak with the department that handles the different products offered. AFCU does offer competitive CD rates; I say this because I do the research nationally. No, their interest rates on checking and savings are non competitive with online savings institutions, that is because online account, such as Discover Bank, do not have the expense of brick and mortar Remember too that banks are for-profit entities, whereas, CUs are membership owned and can offer good rates to their members. Yes, it would be great to have the highest rates for all financial products in one financial institution, but competition is the way of healthy economic growth.

I love credit unions

Posted by: |

I've been with America First Credit Union for many years and have had nothing but positive experiences with them. I like the ease of use of their online bill pay. I lived out of the country for 3 years while with them, and never had any issues with my debit card or bills being paid on time. They have branch locations at convenient places, including grocery stores and Walmart. They are open longer hours than traditional banks. They have convenient ATM locations as well. There are no fees that I need to worry about and free checking. My one complaint is that they don't offer a higher interest rate on checking accounts with high balances. I keep over $20K in my checking, and it would be nice to earn some interest on that.

I Like Credit Unions But AFCU Customer Service Is TERRIBLE

AFCU withheld me from making Zelle payments 2 times. AFCU withheld me from having my business funds transferred to my personal account. AFCU withheld me from being able to verify my business account through my personal account pin because my business account pin was not working. Although I had acknowledged to the call center supervisor Alisa 1229 that I could only verify my account by using my personal account pin number. Ms. Alisa still asked for my business acct pin and tried to use it to verify my account which failed. Then Ms. Alisa refused to allow me to make a transaction on my account because she said she could not verify my account

They Don't Care, Don't Bother

If I could I would give them "0" stars.

Unfortunately, due to Covid pandemic, inflation, and car repairs I needed to file for bankruptcy.

I had 2 checking accounts, 2 savings accounts, a credit card, and a personal loan through them.

After my paperwork for the bankruptcy was filed, they took my money from my checking accounts and transferred it all to my saving accounts.
They then took the little bit of money I had in the one savings account and put it towards the personal loan.
The other savings account they, created a check and sent it to me via mail (I found out they mailed it to me after talking to them over the phone).

They did all of this without my knowledge, and without letting me know they were doing this.

I went to log into my accounts on my phone app and noticed the transfers. I tried to log in through my computer, and it showed I had no accounts except the loan and the credit card.

I called them, and they told me that since they were losing money they closed my accounts, and it was ok for them to take my money from my accounts and put it towards the loan (after I filed for bankruptcy) since it was under $50.

They closed my accounts, without notifying me. I had part of my paycheck being direct deposited into those accounts. So, now I am scrambling to figure out where my money is that was supposed to be deposited into these accounts. As of today, 5 business days later only 2 of the smaller direct deposits have bounced back to my work. The larger deposit and the other small auto deposit still have not bounced back.

I just logged back in today, and see they re-opened the accounts connected to the credit card and loan. They excepted the direct deposits that were supposed to go into the other checking and savings account, and it will not let me transfer the money out. I need to buy food for the week with that money. They are stealing my money at this point.
