Wouldn't Bank Anywhere Else!

It seems to me a lot of complaining from people who couldn't get a loan anywhere else because of their bad credit. I been a member with the credit union for more than 15 years and sometimes I have to wait a while to see a customer representative but that don't stop me from liking this bank. They the only bank who is making loans to our community. Aint no big banks doing that so I don't know why everyone is fussin about having to wait a few minutes to be seen at the branch.

Greatful Customer

I have been a member of this credit union for 5 years. This credit union has helped me rebuild my credit & pay down a load of debt when no one else would. I would give them 5 stars except for the fact that I haven't been able to access my account online since Hurricane Sandy hit.

Online Rates Are Not Accurate

I went into Liberty (Union City branch) to open up a 6 year CD on Feb 15, 2012 since the advertised rate was 2.85%, with an additional 0.1% if you invest $50,000 or more, and their surrender charge is only 3 months simple interest. You can also get another 0.15% if you have a checking account and qualify for silver status (combined assets of 10K). You can get another 0.05% or 0.1% if you have direct deposit and open up a credit card, which I didn't want.

I called on Friday Feb 10 to make sure that the rates were the same as the web site, because their web site states that the rates were effective as of last June, and I figured that the online rates were stale. The customer service rep confirmed the rates.

Unfortunately, when I arrived at the bank the posts rates were significantly lower: 2.1% for the 6 year CD. I still opened up the account with 50K and opened up a checking account with $25 to get the rate up to 2.35%, which is still good considering the low surrender fees- if you hold the CD for 1 year you still earn 1.77% after subtracting the surrender charge.

Regarding the previous posts- service was quite slow- there were two accounts reps at the branch, but both were chatting on the phone for 15 minutes before seeing me. The agent was quite nice however, but I can see them being low tech.

As for the 2 IDs, their membership application specifically states one form of ID if it is a driver's license; for some other IDs, including a passport, it states you need to prove your address with another ID, which makes sense since one of the ways to join the credit union is to be a resident of Hudson county. I opened with a passport but I had my utility bill with me and it was fine. After you join any family member can join through the mail.

If you live in Northern NJ the CD rates are competitive- but don't open anything less than the 5 year since even with the surrenders you will earn more than any of the lower term CDs.

Hope that helps

 

Mrs. Unsatisfied

I have been A member well over 8 years I have always been pleased with Liberty service. Until oneday I was disrespected by The manager Angelina who works out of the Greenville location until January 1, 2016. Mrs. A is bias & she discriminates if your not a Hispanic male you will not be serviced even if your on the list, she will skip you. How did Mrs. A become a manager? Who knows she is incompetent, she had limited knowledge of the loan process. Mrs. A arrives to work late and leaves early, she is arrogant rude & has a very nasty disposition. I am unhappy with how I was treated and I'm considering closing my accounts and joining another credit union.
I made complaints through the proper channels and no action had been taking.
