National Institutes Of Health Federal Credit Union (NIH FCU)

Posted by: |

I have used this FCU for 8 plus years, have been very patient with a number of problems. I am leaving for a bank with better rates, better customer service and a bank that is large enough to be competitive.

I can only give them three stars, would never recommend to anyone.

Inactivity Fee

Posted by: |

The National Institutes of Health Federal Credit Union (NIH FCU) has instituted a quarterly inactivity fee of $25.00 on inactive accounts.  Yes, that's $100 per year.  Needless to say, my wife and I are both closing our accounts.
