I first started using this credit union through my future husband's employer. It was where he could go and cash his checks. With them, we have gotten great ideas on how to grow our money with CDs and money market accounts. They are really active in our community with fundraising. They have many locations around our area, and no matter where we go, they are so friendly and care about their customers. It is always nice to say how well they do when things are going well, but they also are accommodating when things are going badly. They have been there with savings plans for the kids and planning for college as well. They are always willing to show us how to make our money grow for us, which is something we don't know much about and we can trust them wholeheartedly.

Great Institution!

Had a really good experience with CFCU! Thank you all for your great service!

I am not one to write reviews, however, I just quickly wanted to note that this is such a horrible credit union. Their employees are rude, customer service stinks, and they stick you with so many fees and then LOVE not telling you about them. SO UNBELIEVABLE! I cannot WAIT until my loan is paid off so I can be done with them forever!!!!

Rude Customer Support

I recently received a statement through my local credit union stating I had a rejection on a direct deposit.  When I went to inquire about the rejected direct deposit they told me it was an issue with the other party.  I contacted the other party and found out that there was no problem with the deposit and that it had been processed.  I called my credit union and talked to a representitve and she said that it was human error and that it was rejected by a computer gliche.  I still have not come to a conclusion and had the money deposited in my account to to finding the accountability of who is at fault and in that time I had overdrafted my account by default and had to take responsibility. I currently am paying off my overdraft and changing banks.
