UPDATE- 11-30-22 Open A New Account

Just an update to my experience.

Called this week and was able to upgrade my IRA and CDs VERY easily to current rates! Made a significant difference!

VERY friendly and helpful CSR!

Just wanted to post another positive experience!

Hope of value to others.


I had the BEST experience opening a new account with ANYWHERE!

I've opened about a dozen new accounts over the last 5 years and most have been good a few were awfulI.

I Initially contacted DOC fcu customer support with a few questions. The CSR sent email to appropriate dept. and told me I should expect reply within 2 business days as it was over a weekend. I received response the same day!

EVERYONE i've dealt with have been friendly and helpful.

I was prepared when I submitted my application with all the needed info and once accepted got email confirming in process with a link to follow status of application. Don't recall ANY other financial institution doing that in the recent past.

I've seen no indication of credit bureau inquiry.

I did receive email request to unfreeze Chex and took care of that. Within 2 hours I received email letting me know they had what they needed and could re-freeze and did so.

Total time application to completed account was 5 days and 2 of those were over a weekend.

Hope this is helpful.

Tried To Open Membership And Cds

Posted by: |

The terms are very unfriendly, a hard pull when opening memberships. Also, NO partial early withdrawals from CDs, they close your entire CD if you take a few dollars out early. Other CUs allow partial withdrawals and deposit interest accrued to your checking/savings account.

Interacted with Sierra, who is a supervisor, very unfriendly. Had to fish out information.

Awful Customer Service

I called on Monday, 11/21/22 with basic questions on opening a 5 YR CD. The CS agent could not help me but said that another agent would call me on Tuesday. Well, it’s Wednesday, 11/23/22 and no call. I was waiting to see if someone would call to test their CS competence. So far, I am very disappointed. I’ll call on Friday.

Opening A New Account

I filled out an application on line Saturday and funded it today. How easy is that! The CSR was helpful and attentive to setting up a ACH for the CD.
Wouldn't want others to be put up by any misunderstanding of the process and ease to do business with Department of Commerce Federal Credit Union.
