Rates And Service

Posted by: dbojarczuk | Jan 1, 2012

Great rates, both deposits and loans, including a 3.51% rewards checking account, and the highest regular savings rate in its market area.  Combine that with pleasant, personal service, plus investments and insurance, and you have a one-stop financial services organization... onlt criticism, they aren't everywhere.

Horrible Bank

I opened a savings account at GFA credit union - Ashburnham, MA. When I moved a couple of years ago I forgot to change my mailing address. I went into the bank a couple of days ago to close the account and the bank had taken out over $400 because they couldn't send me my statements. BECAUSE they DID NOT send my statements. So they had less work to do and charged me for it. Many phone calls to various managers and they insist this is legal. REALLY???!!!

Discriminatory Practices

Posted by: Anonymous | Aug 3, 2012

Twice I have been rejected for an auto loan with GFA. My credit score is nearly 800 and I have an annual income of over $175,000 with equity in my home. It must be a matter of someone there not liking me or maybe its my Latino heritage. Stay away from this organization and its discriminatory practices
