RATES DROPPING 1 JULY... - 6/29/2020

Grabbed a nice CD today but was told on 1 July "dramatic rate cuts" will happen. So it's probably too late for anyone else not depositing into a new account in person. Oh well, I hope my CD got funded via my wire today! Decent website and they answer the phone so a good review so far!

Nice Customer Service And Communication

HFCU had some nice CD rates in June 2020 but, I didn't apply online until the 29th. However, they contacted me by phone AND email, explained I could wire in the monies and what credit bureau to unfreeze. They even opened the CD to get the better June rate before they even ACH'd my membership account. I was 3 time zones away but, I had the CD in less than 16 hours! Website is a bit confusing but, it works. Recommened if they continue the good rates!

My Experience Was Five Star.

I opened two Roth IRAs in August and was so impressed with a technically advanced application process that I felt my investment would be secure at this Credit Union. The representative helping me saw that the my funds were transferred properly and in a timely manner, which is so important with IRAs. I experienced good communications by very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful people. I feel very fortunate that these CDs (great rates) became available when I had other CDs maturing.

Stuck In The Dark Ages

Posted by: |

In trying to transfer my CD funds from Hughes to another credit union, Hughes refused to accept my request by either fax or by secure email from their website. They insisted on hardcopy requests by US Mail. Even asking for a supervisor/manager to override this policy, I was again refused. This is the 21st Century now. This is on top of their co-mingling of my IRA and personal funds against my specific instructions to not do so. Clueless people, a clueless organization, customer-unfriendly policies. Caveat Emptor.

Just Kudos to Jennifer T who helped me set up
a 36 mo jumbo CD. I had applied and was approved
the day before a rate change. She was very personable and the rate was honored. The set up
took a few days not due to inefficiency but to
their thoroughness--one of the question had to
do with an event 40 years ago!--so I guess if you
do not remember events in your past that can
lead to frustrations and denial of your application.
Very competitive for CD's.
