Great Rates

Posted by: |

Good bank, great rates. However can get a little trigger happy with overdrafts if you have a maxed out line of credit. Working on some math to find out if my 10.99% interest is being calculated properly as it appears it's not. However I won't change my review from 5 stars until I discuss with a banker in person.

Good Short Term CD Rates Currently

Posted by: |

Currently 5.75% APY on 3-5 month CDs for Member Advantage customers.

In general BECU rates are not good. But will take advantage of these.

Okay For A Secondary Bank

Posted by: |

I've had an account here for several years, as it's nearby.

The good: they're checking and savings rates for smaller balances, i.e. <$500, are excellent. Their telephone support has been close to excellent. Multiple cash machines that are inside, at least at the two branches I can think of.
The okay: their in-branch services are fairly good at the front end, where they have staff to hear what you're there for who in turn direct you to the appropriate place.
The could-be-improved: you can sit around for a long, long time, and you have no idea when you're next. The prerequisites for earning the extra interest were unclear until I called in response to a letter I received from them, and they're very minimal. Their website could use updating.
The bad: it took me 4 visits just to get added to a business account, with the first three reps providing a different answer each time. It took a phone call between visits 3 and 4 and bringing in their name and what they said to get it to happen. I get alerts fairly often providing me the code to sign in for my account when I wasn't, and when I call the # in question, I get a general number with AI options!

BECU Investment And Member's Trust Services Disaster

I witnessed the most disgusting and unprofessional behavior and it came from someone who's credentials and business accumam and connection to BECU, has landed them on local television, promoting setting up trusts for families.

Yet this VP and the trust officer, spread false and slanderous defaming information about one of their trust beneficiaries 82 year old last remaining relative, right after the beneficiary, not only lost both parents, but a best friend.

The beneficiary is developmentally disabled and living in near squaller conditions. The most severe German cockroach infestation I have ever witnessed. A microwave arcing and toxic black mold. Telling her that she cannot afford to live outside of public housing and is fine there for another year.

With nearly $400,000.00 in the trust and well over a million more on the way.

They told her that her trust shouldn't pay for her disabled uncle living on $1,500 per month, after his life savings was stolen, on his 150 mile round trips, he shouldn't be reimbursed for the transportation even though every single time, sometimes 2 times a week, she needed for help, claimed to have no support and wanted nothing to do with the organization the Trust and the will, wanted to support her. She said "I am afraid of them. Please don't tell the Arc or the BECU Trust about the mold and cockroaches, they will get mad at me and said I'm fine here for another year."

She has a DSHS worker who has allowed her to remain in these conditions and done nothing to remedy either health risk.

So on Monday, March 18 at about 11:30 am, I drove her uncle the 150 miles and he was in her apartment when the trustee and the VP of BECU Investment and Members Trust Services showed up. One other friend of his niece from another apartment was there as well. The VP said you all have to go. We are only here to meet with the trust beneficiary. The beneficiary said "No! I want my uncle to stay and hear anything you have to say." The VP said "no." Then they went in to verbally bash her uncle and get him out of the way and stop.demanding oversight.

The photographic evidence, recordings etc, are so disgusting and there is no way this developmentally delayed disabled person should be living in this health hazard! Period! This isn't "her choice". You're supposed to be the ones taking care of her!

Disgusted!
