Live Oak Bank Is Tops In On-Line Service

Posted by: PopPop | Jan 26, 2019

Upon retiring I had to make my money work harder for me, I built my CD ladder at about a dozen banks and credit unions that were offering top rates.

They all had pretty much the same account opening processes, but that is were the similarities ended.

Once your first CD account at Live Oak Bank, adding a second / third.... takes under a minute and is painless. Most other banks make you go through the whole opening process again, taking days. Its like they don't even know you.

At LOB, you can control virtually any aspect of your CD online with ease. Beneficiary / Joint Owner / Monthly interest can be sent back to your home bank, what to do when the CD matures, etc. Other banks require a call to their customer service, exchange of forms through the mail, it's an unnecessary bother.

All of LOB's great online service would not be with it if their interest rates were not at the top of the heap, but the consistently are. It's a win / win situation for CD investors. Top rates and top customer service.

Little wonder why most of my money goes to work at Live Oak Bank.

Impossible To Log On To Account

Posted by: shay2020 | Sep 14, 2019

I purchased two CDs from this bank because they had some good rates. When I tried to log on to my account, there was some problems with my web browser. I called for 3 days in a row and no one was able to correct the problem. I have an account with them and I want to purchase more CDs from them but it is impossible to log on to conduct business with them. Really bad for an internet only bank.
Also I wanted to add my wife as a co-owner but they said she had to have her own email address to do that. She only uses my email to conduct business so this makes it more difficult to do business with them.

Five Day Hold With No Interest For Transfers!

Posted by: Tekka | Jun 23, 2017

I opened a Savings account with this bank this past week. I already had a CD there. The CD provides no statements, just an online list of transactions and a 1099-Int. The interest rate was good at the time I opened it, so no big deal.

However, it turns out that there is a 5 day hold on the money I deposited in my savings account. The money came out of my other bank account on Thursday but the CSR says I won't see it in my account until the next Wednesday. Meanwhile, the CSR confirmed and that I am NOT going to earning any interest on that money during that hold period.

There will also be a five day hold on any withdrawals. The CSR said this is because they use an "intermediary bank" for transfer transactions.

This was not made clear in any way before I opened the account. Despite the nice interest rate I won't be moving in any more money. That hold coming and going effectively lowers the interest rate paid.

EPIC FAIL OR GREAT PHISHING EXPEDITION

Just moronic. Undisclosed timed questions about what streets and hospitals are close to you? Is this a joke? They obviously are not looking for a steady increase of customers. Incidentally, such questions are NOT going to prevent a scammer/hacker from answering them correctly. They're only going to confuse the hell out of legitimate customers and waste their time unnecessarily. I'm already with 4 other financial institutions, opening an account should not be like pulling your teeth out. I don't mind being asked real questions that I would know, but these are truly pointless questions that have never been stored in my memory. Like most people, I only remember major roads near me that I actually USE.
