Exception Service

Democracy provided me with exceptional service. They helped me with a debt consolidation loan. I couldn't be happier. Highly recommend them.

Great Experience

Posted by: |

I am not sure why this credit union has such bad reviews.

I opened an account online, had several conversations on the phone and visited the Alexandria branch.

The staff is pleasant, and I was able to open a ROTH IRA at a very competitive rate.

Horrible Experience

This is a terrible financial institution. You can call them any time of day but noone answers the phone and if you leave a message with your name and number they will never get back to you. It took TWO MONTHS from the date that I opened my account to receive a debit card. They do not cash checks for anyone as a policy, even if you are a paying member, and any checks you deposit will have a hold placed on them for one to two days. The employees are apathetic and rude and the management doesn't know the meaning of customer service. I wouldn't recommend this credit union to my worst enemy.
