Greate Except For Holding Funds

Typical credit union for the most part. Friendly service in the one Madison County location.

My only complaint is that check deposits have a 2-day hold for amounts over $200. I also had a $15,000 check subject to a 7-day hold. (Not sure what the threshold is for the longer holding). Direct deposits and paychecks are not subject to holding.

I understand a need for this at some level, but I've had the account for more than a year with dozens of paper check deposits and not a single one has bounced. The tellers keep telling me that the holding will eventually stop but they can't tell me when.

Montgomery Location Is Inconvenient

Posted by: duncan | May 15, 2013

I have been banking with Alabama Telco for years, originally opening my account in Trussville, north of Birmingham. I was pleased with my service in the Trussville location. They had a sign in the drive-through requesting customers to have their deposits ready when using drive-through services. Since moving to Montgomery, I have had to use the Atlanta Highway location. It is inconveniently located, and the drive-through takes forever. Customers sit in their car and fill out their deposit slips while at the window, and there is usually only one window open. Needless to say, I wish I could take my business elsewhere, but let's face it all the larger banks are unfriendly (I have done business with Regions and Compass). The drive-through is definitely not an express service.

Worst Credit Union Ever...

Posted by: adams484 | Mar 16, 2018

I started out with them when they were ALTELCO and it was difficult to deal with since Avadian it has gotten worst. They act like it is a privilege to keep your money in their bank. Take your hat off and stand against the wall while we frisk you before you can enter. They treat their customer like criminals no matter how many years you are with them.

Worst Credit Union I’Ve Ever Dealt With

This credit union has been impossible to work with. They are difficult to do ANYTHING with. Even paying credit card bills with them is a hassle. If you happen to get someone on the phone, nobody has any clue what they are doing, they will quickly transfer you off to someone else who will waste more of your time and transfer you again. Very rude, and had no sort of customer service attitude either. I would never recommend this place to anyone after my experience.
