Competitive with other Banks, Friendly with Customers

Posted by: NewInTown | Nov 14, 2014

We chose to move our bank accounts to Leatherstocking Credit Union when we moved to New York State because we wanted the experience of knowing the people at our bank. We were tired of dealing with huge national banks and having to explain everything to a different person every time we called.

We were pleasantly surprised to discover that Leatherstocking offers competitive products with reasonable fees for checking, savings, and loans. We were also grateful for the friendly atmosphere in the bank. Last Saturday they had a bowl of fresh apples out for everyone to share.

The only drawback to working with this credit union so far is the web site. It works, in the sense that it's possible to figure out how to make it do what you want, but it's clunky and not very intuitive. For example, when you go to bill pay, you can't get back to the home page directly.

Overall, we are grateful to be part of the Leatherstocking Credit Union. We would recommend it to anyone in the region.

Additional Factors: Institutions with a small asset base, a short operating history, or negative return on assets can represent an instability risk beyond what their financial ratios indicate. Leatherstocking Region Federal Credit Union has a low asset base.
