After using banks for years, I began using Ascend when my income plummeted in 2008. Banks required a $50 deposit to open an account; Ascend only asked for $5. As for fees, they are more economical than the banks I formerly used. And their customer service has always been excellent regardless of the status of my accounts.
Continue growing and improving. I'm a member for life.
I have been a member of Ascend FCU for 10+ years before they changed their name to Ascend. Over the past couple of years things have been changing. Their customer service is getting worse and they started to charge a monthly fee for checking accounts. I have since changed banks but Ascend used to be a good bank but not any longer.
