NSCU provides personal service

My wife has a phobia of going into banks, not sure why but it terrifies her. NSCU offers remote deposit and a very good web portal to do online banking so she rarely needs to actually go to the bank in person. However some things do require a trip there. The bank vice president is aware of her phobia and is willing to go well above and beyond what anyone could expect of him. He will arrange for her to meet him there at a time when the bank is closed so there is no one else around, then he will meet her in the parking lot and walk her into the bank. I have never known of any other bank to offer service like this.


My spouses company had moved us to a new city and we were looking for a local bank. I had no experience with credit unions but several of his co workers told him about New South Credit Union. We went in to check out what they offered and if they could meet our needs. They offered a checking and savings account that would work for our needs. The online banking attached to each account was free to use. The credit union and everyone who worked there are always nice, kind, and friendly. They took the time to get to know us and were on a first name basis with us and the children in our family. The president of the credit union is located at the main office and will come out and socialize with everyone. They always had a customer appreciation day were they fed their members and gave away prizes. In a big city this gave us a feeling of belonging and mattering.

Additional Factors: Institutions with a small asset base, a short operating history, or negative return on assets can represent an instability risk beyond what their financial ratios indicate. New South Credit Union has a relatively low asset base.
