Open A New Account

Posted by: |

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.

Opening New Account

So a few weeks on and I've just had my first deposit into the Savings account from the CD. Organized a transfer and it should be in my Ally checking account on Monday. My rate is 3.1% on a Jumbo CD which I got before the rates dropped. I think it's definitely the case that if a credible institution offers a really good CD deal that the response will be big and they are likely to be overwhelmed. I benefited from linking up with a good contact at the credit union

Opening New Cd

Have to agree with reviews both good & bad. When I first applied for a new joint cd the process went smoothly, although it was cumbersome having to establish a membership in the American Consumer Council, as well as open a savings acct with a $5 minimum.

Problems arose when I next applied for an individual cd/savings acct. Since I had already listed myself as the primary on the joint application, I could not have another account with me as the primary. I had to switch the primary to my spouse, so I could open the individual cd & savings acct. All the online documents & follow up phone calls took many weeks to approve and make the necessary changes. Most of the folks I spoke with were very pleasant and apologized for the delay stating they had received an overwhelming response and were working weekends to resolve.

After about a month my second cd & savings acct were finally established. Even though the rates had dropped, I was assured I would receive the APY advertised at the time of my application, and I did! Just need persistance & patience. Don't think I would jump through all these hoops again.

Guess They Do Not Want New Members

Posted by: |

Wanted to take advantage of their CD rates so I applied online Tuesday (5/3) AM and got a completion screen with the message that my app number was xxxxxx, I was pre-qualified and a New Member associate with get with me soon to finalize everything. Figured I would least get an email notice that I had applied. Nothing. Thursday I called them asking about the status of my app but I was told that the membership department did not take calls originating outside the bank so I had to give my information to the phone rep who promised she would get it to the membership department and they would contact me. Crickets. Early Friday AM I sent them an email from their website and have still heard nothing. If their rates were not so attractive I would ditch the entire effort. If anyone else has had better luck, congratulations.
