NASA FCU Just Issued Higher Rates: 3.0%-48 Mo.; 2.5%-15 Mo.; 2.0%-9 Mo. - 6/23/2022

NASA FCU just sent me an e-mail saying thet just hiked their rates on three CDs: •48 mo., 3.00% APY •15 mo., 2.50% APY •9 mo., 2.00% APY You can see those rates here: https://www.nasafcu.com/stellaryields?sp_rid=NTg2ODAzNzYwNTk1S0&sp_mid=71761051&spMailingID=71761051&spUserID=NTg2ODAzNzYwNTk1S0&spJobID=2246314111&spReportId=MjI0NjMxNDExMQS2 The e-mail says "hurry - this offer ends June 30, 2022." I do not take it to mean it will be eliminated on July 1, but it might be. These rates require new money brought into NASA, and it's $10,000 minimum to open the CDs. Anyone can join NASA FCU via a complimentary membership to the National Space Society.

Great Credit Union

Posted by: |

I love Nasa FCU. They have always had competitive rates and they actually answer the phone within reasonable amount of time. I have been with them for about 3 years and just renewed a Jumbo CD, a process which went smoothly and efficiently. I would recommend Nasa to anyone wanting a strong financial institution and top-notch customer service.

CD Opening

Posted by: |

I opened a CD account online. I don't recall it being that much of a hassle, and I wanted that great 49 month CD rate. Once it was opened, I had 30 days to fund it. I did the trial deposit thing and ACH'd the money from my bank to the savings account. Their limits don't apply when you initiate from your bank. Also, it is true that you cannot then switch the money to the CD, however, they are very responsive to the message function. They replied within a couple of hours and moved the money immediately. I did not have to call.

A Little Frustration

Application was completed followed by form emails needing Drivers license (provided) proof of residency (Drivers license doesn't count) and copy of SOCIAL SECURITY CARD! Haven't had to do this since the 1960's & draft registration. Happy to report NASA CU reached out and we'll do business going forward.

Lots Of Hassle To Open Account

Posted by: |

Day 5 after initial application. After applying they wanted a copy of my SS card, I don't have an original so I sent a copy of my statement. Next day they requested a copy of my DL, after I initially sent it with the application. Next day they wanted to know what city, state did I make my application in. These emails come at 3am, I have Do Not Disturb on so it didn't go off what bank sends you email at 3am. Then the next day at 3am they sent another email asking where I applied at again. I'm still listed as pending on their web portal. On the plus side, when I called they said I could set a CD to auto payout at maturity. They have a 15 month CD @ 1.05% but at this point I don't know if an extra 15 basis points is worth hassle. I'll probably just leave the $5 in the required savings account and see what they're like to deal with after that. If your look for an easy relationship I'd pass on NASA Federal.
