Great To Do Business With

My wife and I moved to New Hampshire a decade ago and were accustom to doing business with large banks. We decided to open an account at Northeast Credit Union and couldn't be happier. Setting up an account was easy and NECU's no fee policy for conducting everyday business has saved us lots of money. They have top notch customer service in the branches and in the Porstmouth, home office location. We highly recommend them if you're looking for a friendly local bank.

Innovative Mortgage Lending

We have a savings and checking account with Northeast Credit Union. Their fees are very low or no fee and their website is very easy to navigate. I am able to transfer money in and out of accounts and pay bills all online. This makes banking with them extremely convenient. We actually use their checking account in coordination with another checking account that we have and easily manage to transfer money between accounts and pay the bills that we want to from each account.

Nickel And Dime

Posted by: laynelab | Nov 7, 2016

I've been long time member but all of a sudden they nickel and dime you with new fees: $5 quarterly account "INACTIVITY FEE" and $2 "PAPER STATEMENT FEE". These are nothing but irritants. Apparently if you have a long-term CD, which implies account inactivity, you will get hit. In the universe of Bank and Credit Unions, I will certainly look for business elsewhere!

I was not impressed.

Posted by: MeaghanJ | Dec 20, 2016

I initially chose to go with Northeast Credit Union as a second bank due to a family member speaking highly of it. Right away, I was not impressed. First, I signed up for both a checking and a savings account. They only opened a savings account for me. Then, they sent me SOMEONE ELSE'S account information (checking and savings account numbers), which is a huge breach of security. I called to set up my savings account, and when I gave them the numbers, they told me it was not my account. It wasn't my family member's account either, so I had the information of some other member's account which is not good at all. They are very quick to charge you fees, and the customer service is not that great. They did remove one fee for me because I told them the ordeal with how they sent me someone else's information, so I'm sure they were scared about me going to someone about it, which I probably will still do. I would never recommend this bank.
