Happy customer

Posted by: Steph1223 | Jan 11, 2015

I have been a happy customer of NASA federal credit union for years. Initially I was concerned with the fact that there are no locations nearby enough to go to, but I have not had any issues doing my banking online with them. When I have a check to deposit, it is easy enough to take a picture of it and deposit it using my phone without even having to travel anywhere. It has been quick and easy to make any transfers as well as authorizing larger purchases with my accounts. In every instance in which I've had to call customer service, they have been friendly, understanding, and I've hung up the phone being very pleased with the experience. I made an error with my checking account at one point, and after a quick phone call, they offered to refund a fee I was charged from my own error. Overall, I am very happy with this credit union.

Checking and saving accounts

Posted by: Camelia77 | Mar 3, 2015

I have been with NASA Federal Credit Union for more than 10 years. Compared to my experience with other banks, I really like that there is no monthly fees or other fees for my both checking and saving accounts. Another good thing is that I don't need to worry about the overdraft fees for my checking account. If there is not enough money in my checking account, the bank will automatically transfer money from my saving account, without any fees or penalty! That's very nice. I have a checking and a saving accounts with another bank. It didn't offer the same service, so I was charged a overdraft fee. Also, it is very convenient for me to withdraw cash from either the bank or the ATM machine, without fees, AGAIN!

NASA Credit Union Be Careful

If you open an account here they do a HARD credit pull which lowers your credit score.

Is It Legal For Them To Ask For A Copy Of Your SS Card

Posted by: DPlts123 | Feb 16, 2018

This review is about the CU's membership application requirements - specifically regarding social security card.

I submitted an on-line application and received an email for me to send over (1) a copy of my social security card to prove my identity, (2) a copy of my driver licence which I already submitted, and (3) something else such as a lease agreement or utility bill etc. to prove my address beside the driver licence, unusual but I didn't have major problem with it.

I called back and told them I wasn't comfortable sending a copy of my SS card and the customer service told me the requirement can not be changed. I have banked in many places and this is the first time I was ever asked to do it. Is it even 'legal' for them to ask for that??? With so much identity theft going on, how can I trust them to protect my identity, let alone giving them a copy of my social security card?
