CFCU provides banking the way I need it

I have been a member of Coastal Federal Credit union for several months. So far, the experience has been amazing. Setting up the account was easy, as I was able to do it online. There customer service team was very responsive in answering questions that I had and was able to quickly get my accounts activated. This is not a bank in the traditional sense I was used to. The tellers, including the drive-through, are mainly accessed electronically through kiosks. I initially thought this would be awkward, but it was a very seamless experience. The feature I have enjoyed the most has been their mobile banking app. In addition to easy mobile account access, I am able to scan and deposit checks using their mobile deposit feature. This has saved me many trips to the bank. Their automated bill-pay feature is also nice as I can schedule my bills for the month and not have to remember to manually pay each one. This has saved me the headache of missed payments and late fees. Try out CFCU if you are eligible, you will not be disappointed.

Coastal Federal Credit Union is great

I really like Coastal Federal Credit Union. They have pretty good interest rates for checking and savings accounts, but the main reason why I like them is because the customer service is great. I also like that even though I live in a different state, they are connected to other partner credit unions so I can go to one in my area if I need something like a cashier's check or anything like that, or I can even do regular banking transactions such as withdrawing or depositing money into savings or checking at one of these pretty much the same as if I were at my home branch. I got my first debit (and credit) card at this bank when I was 16 years old and I was able to get set up with a very low limit and get started with personal banking with a checking and a savings account before many of my friends who didn't bank there were able to. Lastly as far as my personal bank accounts go, I like that they have a wonderful fraud detection system and as soon as there is even a hint of fraud on the account they are on top of things and notify me and take any other precautions to make sure that my accounts are safe.

A Rocky Start, but Very Optimistic

My husband and I chose to try Coastal Credit Union after a lot of research and reviews from friends and family. Unfortunately, we had to pay $25 to join an organization that we don't particularly support in order to qualify to join Coastal, as we didn't already belong to any of the organizations that automatically qualify. We were also disappointed to learn that with joint accounts, there must be one primary account person - separate and secondary logins are not available, so I often have to do business as my husband. Aside from the rocky start however, service has been wonderful and you can't argue with the hours of teller availability (7am to 7pm every day!).

Coastal Federal Credit Union Unable To Give Balance, Stopped Home Purchase

Posted by: sethdobso | Jan 4, 2017

Coastal Federal Credit Union has an inside problem, looks to be more than a coincidence. This is not the first time this has happened. They held up a routine external transfer in for a day last week from another financial institution. I was trying to make a home purchase today and need the funds in one account. Today the systems are down online and in the service center and branches. They won't even give me my balance. I'm transferring out about $30,000--don't chance it. I can't make my purchase. The last time I sent a wire request, they said they never got it (have confirmation). Hard to believe this can go on.
