Take A Deep Breath Before You Start

Posted by: megp | Sep 21, 2018

The process to become a member and to open an account was long but once open it was easy to fund.

Wired funds posted in less than 24 hours.

2 minute phone call to buy 15 mo. 3.25% CD.

In retrospect, I am happy to jump through a few hoops to insure that my account is secure and that the bank isn't allowing any funny-business.

I feel like I am in good company (naIve as it may sound.) Feeling Happy!

2nd wire transfer posted approximately 3 hours after it was sent.

Opened 15 Mo CD

Posted by: DMP | Sep 10, 2018

Went to their website, filled out application. 2 days later received email Status as Approved. Interest compounds monthly.
Had to call to get my Account number and asked it there was a Maximum I could deposit. No can put in as much as I want. Wired in money. My CU has free outdoing wire and NASA doesn't charge to receive wire. 2 hours later in my account. Called and told CSR to open my 15 month CD. All done. No Notary needed. They did have me scan and send in Driver's License and my Trust Certification copy. Easy. A+ CSR very nice.

Good Experience Overall

Posted by: BillA | Sep 24, 2018

Opened a CD account and got in funded without jumping through any hoops. The only hiccup was that they have a $10k limit per ACH pull, so I had to link up an external account and do a push from the other side. Good responsiveness to both phone and web mail communications and CSR was knowledgeable.

Notarize This

Posted by: milty | Sep 6, 2018

I think my experience is the same as many others here in that jumping through NASA CU's extreme hoops to open a CD account here just to earn 25 basis points more does not hardly seem worth it. So run don't walk away from this unless you don't mind having to send or upload "notarized" copies of your driver's license, social security card, utility bills, car registrations, etc., even though you have already passed their identity test questions. As far as I am concerned NASA CU can go shove their notary requests . . .
