Decent Experience

Posted by: |

According to their CSR, due to overwhelming demand, they are 72 hours behind.

Opening a CD account:
• Soft pull w/Trans Union
• Require a copy of social security card, although not listed
• Disregard their email, you need to be proactive as no one contacts you during approval process.
• Maximum ACH transfer is $250,000 for opening a CD account. Over that amount needs to be wired in.
• Your membership number is not the same as your account number

Connexus Credit Union

Very well designed website for applying for a money market account. Very fast response to application. Excellent rates on money market accounts. Also great talking to their customer service representatives.

Should we worry about its health with a Tex Ratio Trend of C+?

Not As Good As It Once Was....

Posted by: |

This bank continues to not allow funds to be sent via ACH. Thus you close a CD and have to wait 10 days for a check sent, without tracking, then wait for that check to clear. $20 to wire funds. Their rates are no longer leading and the web site does not allow simple account management like providing instructions upon CD maturity. I'm move all my funds as the CDs mature.
