NEFCU is terrific

I joined NEFCU when I began my first job in the public school system on Long Island, NY over 25 years ago. Every thing I needed was available through the credit union. Easy applications for credit cards, car loans, mortgages, were right at my finger tips. If I had a question there was always a live person to speak to either by phone or chat on the site. NEFCU also provided me with a free checking account and a competitive rate for my savings account. This is a great bonus to being part of the education system.

Great Credit Union

NEFCU is a credit union that works for its members and provide a great rewards checking account, contests for members, low rate loans, and works on providing new services that provide savings and convenience to members.

Review of Nassau Educators Federal Credit Union

As a customer of over 5 years, I have not endured a painful experience. Every encounter I have had with tellers, or any staff have always been very helpful and knowledgeable. They are very lenient and understanding when it comes to accidental overdrafts. One time, one of my checks did not finish clearing, and I tried to withdraw money with my ATM card. It overdrew, and the fee was waived when I explained the situation. They really seem to care about their clients.

Online Banking

Posted by: Anonymous | Jun 9, 2012

The online banking is terrible. Someone tells you you can only do it online, then online says you have to call the bank. I have been trying to set it up, and they say it's so easy. That you can do it from home, but I have to get up and walk a town over and talk to someone in person.
