Customer Service Lacking

Not easy to deal here. Customer service reps not well trained or knowledgeable. In person service only 1 day per week at location in safe neighborhood, and you can't rely on someone being there. Need to call first. Phones don't get answered promptly. Calls do not get prompt response. Only reason to deal here is that at present they are 1 of only 2 institutions with decent rates. They have little knowledge of IRS regs re IRA accounts. When I asked for a Transfer form, they gave me a Rollover form and did not understand the difference.

Additional Factors: Institutions with a small asset base, a short operating history, or negative return on assets can represent an instability risk beyond what their financial ratios indicate. Chicago Municipal Employees Credit Union has a relatively low asset base.
