My Experience with Chartway Federal Credit Union

My husband is active duty Navy, so we lived in Virginia Beach, VA for a little over two years. While living there, we wanted to get an account with a local bank or credit union. After doing some research, we decided to visit Chartway Federal Credit Union by the Lynnhaven Mall. Upon arriving, the customer service representatives greeted us and asked how they could help us. We told them that we wanted some information on their banking services, but that we would not be joining their credit union until we had a chance to compare to a few other places in person. They were still very helpful and friendly, and never tried to rush us even though they knew we would not be signing anything that day. After comparing them to a few other places, we both decided that Chartway Federal Credit Union was the best place for us. The customer service representative remembered us by name and greeted us as soon as we entered. We were able to sign up that day for a checking account, savings account, and we were given information for various lending services in case we would ever need one. We never had any issues with bogus charges or fees. Interest rates were always very competitive. We visited multiple branches while living in the area, and never had a bad experience. All of their employees are always knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The lines always move in a timely manner, even on popular paydays like the 1st, 15th, and Fridays. I love how professional this credit union is and was very upset when we moved to a new state that did not have Chartway Federal Credit Union branches. The fees are minimal compared to most other places so it is always disappointing when I see charges with our new credit union that I know that Chartway Federal Credit Union would not have charged me.

Chartway Federal is a legit bank, nice service

Posted by: RobY | Dec 14, 2014

Chartway Federal Credit Union has been a great experience for me, thus far, with just a few hiccups. I primarily use the bank on Holland Rd in Virginia Beach, VA. for my checking needs, and have found the process to be very simple. In particular, I found ATM use to be easy if you have a card with the bank, however if you dont - say you have a Paypal business card for example, you will be subject to some hefty fees since it is out of the bank's network. Because it is a credit union, there are also specific guidelines for gaining membership that tend to make customer service feel more like a "family" feel rather than feeling like a sheep among other sheep at larger, more reputable banks. That praise is for the branch itself - if there were any qualms, I would say that it would come in the form of telephone customer service, which in the few times I have had to use it, took a bit longer than I would have liked. Still, overall, it is worth my time and money to stay at Chartway Federal and I intend to bank there for much longer into the future.

Out Of Country Coins CHECK THEM!!

Just as a heads up if you go to get coins every week for laundry or other reasons please be mindful to check all of your rolls of coins while you are there because recently we have revied Canadian coin that are obviously not usable here. Just to save you a ride to the curency exchange becaus it can be a hassle. Other than that we have not really had a problem with chartway.

Small But Not Too Small...

I have been with Chartway for a couple years and they have been very helpful.   Getting support can be a challenge on their busy days, but they respond well via email and chat.   

I have become a supporter of the Thrive Movement and decided to take my funds out of the mega banks that have caused so many of the worlds economic issues.   Chartway is small, but they service the customer and that's what is important.   When banks get too big they become greedy and thats not good for anyone.   

I am slowly moving the majority of my assets into Chartway, and funding local growth.
