Legacy Community Federal Credit Union

Posted by: Gigglyield | Sep 7, 2017

Legacy Community Federal Credit Union in Birmingham, Alabama has been my credit union for over 25 years. I have had my paychecks direct deposited there since I graduated college in 1992. Legacy offers local banking with very reasonable fees, and the atmosphere inside the main branch is welcoming and is a very relaxing environment in which to do my business.

The one drawback that I have with Legacy is the terrible rate of return on deposit accounts (Savings, Checking, Money Market, CDs, IRAs). That is why I do not save large sums of money at Legacy Federal Credit Union, preferring, instead, to utilize online banking opportunities. In other words, I just use Legacy for clearing my checks and paying my bills. All other savings are then funneled to my online savings accounts.

Great credit union!

I've banked with Legacy for 5 years now. I opened the account at the suggestion of my friend at a car dealership when I was buying a used car. If I was a member I could get a really low rate. So I deposited 50 dollars into a savings account and was able to get the rate for the car I was buying. I ignored the open savings account for at least a year until I realized they were offering a 2% interest rate on checking which is higher than a lot of CD products, so I switched over 90% of my paycheck to the credit union. Since then, I've started using the credit union as my primary bank. I love the Credit Union experience.

I Like It, As Advertised

Good rewards system (2% interest checking). The staff are friendly. Been using this for about a year. ATM rewards have happened without a hitch. I use ACH from a different bank which quals for direct deposit. I do a bunch of $1 payments for my internet payment which counts as my required transactions. Overall, good stuff and I'm happy. No issues and convenient locations for me in Birmingham, AL.

Overdraft Fees And Transfer Problems

Posted by: radgirl | Apr 9, 2012

Please tell me why Legacy only allows 6 online transactions per month? If you have computer banking why only 6? Also why do they transfer 3.00 at a time from your savings when you are about to overdraw and then charge you 3.00 to do it? Is this a ploy to use up your 6 transactions because even if you have money in your savings to cover any overdraw they will not transfer any more money after 6 transfers have been made(these include any you have already made) and will then start charging you 36.00 per overdraw regardless of how much money you have in savings which is supposed to be linked to your checking. I really don't want a useless 3.00 transfer if it's going to use up one of my 6 transactions and I'm going to be charged 3.00 for the service. I discussed this practice with my coworkers and no one could believe the way they handle their online banking.The consensus was why have online banking if it's so limited and how ineffective their overdraft protection was. I'm starting to wonder if this isn't just another way for them to insure fees without being as obvious a bigger banking  institutions as they tout themselves as being smaller and more about their customers. If they were really about their customers they would figure out a better solution for their overdraft protection and their computer banking.
