DFCU Members Come First

Five years with DFCU. Customer service is huge with them. They are helpful and fast at the drive up window and whenever we need to call in for anything, they are always understanding and resolve our issues quickly. DFCU has an amazing website that makes managing our account simple. Their billpay feature always us to pay curtain bills fast that can not be paid online. We never get charged fees, but when the occasional overdraft occurs, they are good about reversing it for us based on our history with them.

Change In Interest Rates For Checking

Posted by: NP | Oct 10, 2012

As of October 1 2012 the interest rate that DFCU pays on checking accounts changed. Amounts up to $10,000 receive 1% interest (which is great) but any amounts over $10,000 only receive .1%.   I pulled out my money over the $10,000 mark and put it into an ING online checking account which pays .8%.   I am better off but it seems that DFCU might lose access to funds because of this change...  

Not Customer Oriented

Posted by: gajman | Sep 19, 2016

Something has changed at this credit union. Their customer service is horrible. Their web site always has a problem and there is never a warning posted that they are having troubles you just go in and it doesn't work.

More than that, they think that you should be forced to do business with them. They offer a car loan, but are quick to say, we will match any rate. Then when you get a better rate, they are not open so they can't match the rate.

If another credit union or bank will give you a better deal than your own credit union, why would you go back to them and give them your business...there is an element of fairness here.

Overall a C- institution.
