Good And Bad

The bank is very strict in their policies.  Their managers have an attitude and are not very accommodating.  But they do offer a 0.25% hike in the CD rates if you're over 55 (or have someone joint on the account who is).  So this makes this bank worth it with one of the highest CD rates in the country.

Terrible Credit Union

They actually require an in-person branch visit to close your main account down (good luck closing your account if you've moved out of Atlanta). You cannot fax anything to them to close it down (you can only fax for closing CDs...but all they can do is transfer the funds to your main account). And when you go in-person to close the account, you have to wait for member services who are ALWAYS extremely busy. And then member services has to get a sign-off from the CFO (another person you now have to wait for) who will try to talk you into their investment packages to get better returns and keep your account with them. And then you take that paperwork to the teller to actually (finally!) get your check. It took me 3.5 hours to close my account down.

They also automatically opt you into their identity theft services per month that gets deducted from your account. Sure you can call to opt out, but they shouldn't automatically opt you in for things like things unless you state otherwise.


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. Credit Union of Atlanta has a relatively low asset base.
