Langley FCU Charges Fee To Move Your IRA To Another Institution

Opened an IRA CD when they had the 1% CD special recently. When I received the certificate in the mail, I discovered there is a $20 charge to move the IRA to another institution.

Langley FCU Smart Checking Account

Posted by: |

Langley Federal Credit Union has a smart checking plus account that offers me multiple benefits over the regular checking account members. These benefits include mobile banking, online bill pay, and eStatements, all of which are free. Also there is not a minimum balance and there are never any member fees or service charges. One of my favorite features that they offer is the early payday deposit. I can generally have my full paycheck available to me a day before most other people that I work with. Another benefit is that when you use their debit card they deposit $0.10 into your checking account. Also Langley waives ATM fees at other ATMs. Their interest rates for savings and checking accounts are not very good however. The best that I am aware of with them is around 1% and that is only for lower amounts. Upgrading from smart checking to smart checking plus was almost automatic, the only requirements that I remember were signing up for online statements and maintaining a minimum of $500 in your account. Overall I have enjoyed dealing with Langley Federal Credit Union over the past 12 years that I have been with them.

Difficult To Open Account

Posted by: |

I tried to open an account online over the weekend. The good news is they require very little information. The bad news is they could not complete my account opening, and I would hear from someone in 2 business days. I called them Thursday morning and was told the account would be open by the end of the day. Nothing. Called Friday morning and was told I would have the paperwork in an hour. Got the paperwork, and my name was spelled wrong. I was on hold for 11 minutes, after speaking to a customer service rep, just to get my name spelled correctly. They sent a corrected docusign, which I completed. Then I kept getting docusign notices to sign the one with the incorrect name. I will say that I completed a survey and spelled this out, and a rep contacted me. She was able to cancel the incorrect docusign.

What a disappointment. The fine print says if you deposit more than $10,000 the balance goes in your savings account.

Could Have Been Great - If They Followed Up On Communication

I joined Langley about a month ago, and soon after saw they had a promotion for auto refinance: $250 cash, and they also give you back 10% of the interest you pay. The rate was the same as I'm paying now, so I decided to do it. Unfroze my credit report since they said a new pull was required for auto (even in the 30 day window from joining), and did the online app. It sat there for about 2 weeks as pending, with no communication from Langley at all. I called a few times to check on it and was always promised someone would get back/reach out to me, but no one ever did. I was definitely unimpressed at this point so I decided to see if email would be a better avenue. After some googling, found a VP of Consumer lending and sent an email explaining everything to him - no reply. Finally the status changed to DECLINED, reason: Not eligible for membership in this CU. WHAT?! So I called them yet again, and explained that I was already a member, and I applied through online banking so my member # was on the application. The CSR was as confused as I was, but they promised to have a supervisor look into it. A few more days passed w/o communication, so I called in again. A very nice and apologetic gentleman said he really wanted to help me and promised he'd call back within 24 hours or so - this was a week ago, and I still have yet to hear from anyone. I tried emailing higher up just to see if anyone would follow up with me, and 4 business days later, no one has reached out. I can't imagine continuing to do any kind of business with a credit union that so blatantly ignores its members.
