Easy To Get CD Approved But Not To Fund

I was approved for the 15 mo. CD, yet I suppose I have to call to fund my CD, yet I called 3 times until they closed without an answer. :-(

Update, 6/23/19: The bank is open Saturday so I was able to get a hold of a Rep and was explained how to fund first the Savings account, wire transfer is the best option, and then call to fund CD. You have 10 days to fund CD. For the POD or Beneficiary, you have to download/print the Member Application, fill out, including Beneficiary, and return via email to: [email protected] . I don't think I will fund a CD if the Beneficiary is not established first, so I hope they can process it quickly otherwise I won't take my chances.

Feels Like A Bank

Posted by: |

Moving to UNFCU after 10 years with NASA. Fees and procedures make this a cold space adventure. We've always had large deposit accounts and still get nickeled and dimed so don't expect dividends to matter. Funding CDs and moving money around is a hassle and requires talking to someone on the phone.

We love what credit unions stand for, but NasaFCU has lost touch with members; heck I feel closer to CapOne. Nothing to be proud of here. Sad, and you know, after 10 years we closed our accounts, no one even asked why?...bye bye, stay away

Poor Communication

Communication is extremely poor. I agree with many negative reviews here the application process is extremely bad. No followup and unreasonable application requirements that doesn't make sense. I wish I have not responded to their solicitation.
