Best Credit Union In The State!!

Posted by: BSC2005 | Oct 11, 2017

Been with this CU for years and they are the best Financial Institution I have ever banked with. Like all places they might have issues or problems, but they fix them and listen to you when you do. I love these folks. The call center is wonderful and the people seem to really care. If you want to bank somewhere and feel like a person Arkansas Federal Credit Union is the best bank in Arkansas.

ACFU is amazing

I have been a customer of Arkansas Federal Credit Union for years and could not be more satisfied. I have many accounts with them, including my primary checking and savings, as well as a CD. Their CD rates are very competitive and at the time I invested were among the highest in the country. They have always provided outstanding service, either via telephone or in person. In addition, they have a very good fraud department that took good care of me when there was some unauthorized activity on my checking account. I highly recommend them to my friends and family!

Long term member

I have been with the Arkansas Federal Credit Union for 20 years. In that time, I have had checking and savings accounts. I joined because my family all banked there. I have not been very impressed with my membership. I rarely see any "perks". My biggest problem with the AFCU is their hours of operation, and lack of convenient locations. When I need to withdraw money from my account, I must first find a location. Most of the time the ATM is not working. When I try to go inside to make a withdrawal, there is only 1 teller working and she is never in a hurry. I used to receive great customer service on their 1-800 #, but since the last upgrade to their service it is extremely hard to get a hold of anyone by phone. Overall, I have been so displeased that I am currently looking for a new financial institution.

I was a customer with AFCU, but now I am dissolving all my accounts with them. I applied for a loan with them and they denied based on false information. Finally after receiving a call because I told them they discriminate against certain members, I was explained why they denied the loan. The information they had was incorrect info. Even though, I told them all the information they were going by was incorrect and I had paperwork to prove it. They did not even consider reviewing the information. I even had a credit card with them and that was paid on good judgement. I am dissolving all my accounts because they are not in the business to helping people of color.
