Great Credit Union

Posted by: Roe | Sep 2, 2015

This is the best credit union I have used. It is 2 miles from my house so very convenient to drive to. The customer service is outstanding. Free cashier's checks are available when you have a checking or savings account with them. Also, free ATM usage for their customers. I have excellent service from their bank tellers. The fees are none if you maintain your account there. I have not checked on Money Market, CDs or IRAs but I will in the future. I have used credit unions in the past but this is the BEST!

America's First, a credit union for you

I have been a member of this credit union for over 35 years. I have had a student loan, car loan, as well as checking and savings accounts. My mother has had accounts and loans from them for over 45 years. Unlike banks, they are much more personal and friendly. Also, your account comes with a small life insurance policy.
