Credit Union for the People

I've banked with my local credit union for 9 years and I signed up with them when we moved into the area. There are only two locations in our local area and I frequent one of those closest to me. I originally decided to open an account with them because my husband did, but I've learned that they are the best around. With the option we have locally (which is a very small area) there are a couple of big named banks and I did have another account there but closed it due to the fact that they never recognized me when I came in. My credit union almost always has the same people at the teller desk and they recognize me and ask me about my kids. Between my husband and I we have several accounts, some joint and some not, my regular teller knows the accounts apart due to my needs and I don't have to explain in detail which one I want to work with. There has also been the same account manager at the same location since I can remember. He also knows us and is very knowledgable on our investing needs and account needs. Normally they have better than competitive rates and they always have time for us to explain the best options. The best story I have is that we were on vacation in NYC and someone hacked one of our accounts. We didn't know that it had happened, but the bank caught it that same day and called us immediately to let us know. They took care of everything and had constant communication with us.

Best Credit Union Around

I currently bank with Local Government Credit Union. I go to the bank at least twice a week and the people working at the credit union are great. They call you by your last name and acknowledge you as soon as you come in the bank. The deposits are credited that day. If they have to place a hold on your money they explain it to you and also give you a letter to sign stating that you understand why they are holding the funds. When you call the bank for anything they make sure you understand the answer before hanging up. I have seen them with the elderly and they do a great job making sure the elderly are ok and understand things. They are kind and you never feel rushed to make your transaction complete. If you forget a deposit slip or something they will help you write out one. I never have unplanned service charges on my account either. I just really love the Local Government Credit Union and all they do for me. They make me feel safe putting my money in their bank.

My Banking Institution

I think this the best credit union in my opinion because people are very helpful and have a great online banking website. I often purchase items online and can easy see my purchases made when I look at my account online. The online banking website is very easy to understand and navigate. They often post great financial tips and also a financial calculator to help with balances. I would not change. I will continue to bank with this credit union because of helpful advice and great customer service. I would refer people if they are looking to bank with a great bank that has great reputation offers great services.

I have been a member of LGFCU for 8 years now. I have a checking and savings account with them. I also have taken out a personal loan with them in the past. I've had only good experiences with this bank. Their tellers are friendly, their fees are minimal, and their interest rates are competitive. The only complaints that I have are that they don't have more convenient hours and that they don't offer the most advanced technology. I would give them a better rating if their hours were more convenient or if they offered a way to deposit checks online by taking a picture so I wouldn't have to go to the bank at all. But with that being said, it's kind of hard to complain when the fees and interest rates are good. I guess it's a trade off. I did have an experience a few years ago in which a store charged me without my authorization. I contacted the bank and they told me that I would have to contact the company to get my money back and they gave me the information to do so. In the mean time, since they felt that my debit card had been compromised, they cancelled that card and sent me a new one without charging me anything. I was able to get the money back through the company and the bank was quick to respond with getting me a new card, I just wish they would've done more on their end. What if the company had refused to refund me? Would I have been stuck with paying for something that I didn't buy?
