Legacy Community Federal Credit Union

Posted by: |

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.

The Worst Credit Union

Posted by: |

I was a checking and savings account member for 7 years.

I wish I never joined this credit union because of the inexplicable overdraft fees, no alert system for low balance, mysterious automatic account payments, and the poor customer service.

Do yourself a favor and consider a different credit union.
