NFCU Offering To Convert 3 Yr Add-On To Current 5 Yr Promo CD - 5/21/2018

I received email from Northwest Federal offering to convert 3 Yr Add-On (3.04% with max of $100K) that many of us opened back in Oct. 2015 to current 5 year promo CD (3.15% for sub $100K, 3.41% for $250K+). That 3 Yr Add-On was irresistible, this 5 Yr less so. "Your Dream Certificate will be maturing in October. We don't want you to miss out on an opportunity to earn one of the highest dividend rates in the nation. For a limited time only, you can convert your Dream Certificate, without penalty, to a new 5-year Appreciation Certificate. This special offer is also available on new money you deposit to open a 5-year Appreciation Certificate.”

Completed application 10/3. Heard nothing. Called them, transferred to phone mail, mailbox full. Told by others on this web site to upload drivers license and did that. Emailed them, no response. Found out their email works when I received an email from them today that my application was cancelled. No reason why. Just told to call 703-709-8900 option 5. Called them, transferred to phone mail, mailbox full. This is well after their promotion ended. UPDATE: They responded to my email and agreed it should have been opened and they opened it. Ultimately a good result but an awkward way to get there.

NO Customer Service At ALL

I've been trying to open a $50,000 cd at this Credit Union. I've so far invested almost 2hrs yesterday. And still it isn't done. I've been on hold trying to contact them for over 1hour so far. I would definitely discourage anyone to do business with them. Customer service is nonexistent . UPDATE: We did finally connect with customer service. Must have been a glitch with there incoming calls. I received an apology which was greatly appreciated. However, your website is just not that user friendly for new accounts. Needs some tweaking for sure.

Horrible Service

Posted by: tinman | Oct 9, 2015

I am attempting to open an account with this bank to take advantage of the current promotional rate CD.

I was initially impressed that their online application walked your through the membership criteria of joining their Financial Awareness Network ($10 membership fee). But so far the application process has been needlessly complicated.

If you don't qualify for membership by other ways, you can join the Financial Awareness Network for $10. Then when you select your product (CD in my case), the online system tells you you also are required to fund a primary savings account. This is pretty standard for credit unions. But two issues. You already had to pay $10 for FAN membership. Now they have also locked up another $1 for the primary savings. More importantly, there is an additional stipulation that they can charge you if you fall below $5. Feels shady that they tell you that you only have to fund with $1, then come back and say...oh yeah, but we'll charge you.

I proceed with my online application and submit. It's now been a week, and my application is not approved yet. They communicate via online messaging which sends you an email notification that a message is waiting. They needed to confirm my Driver's license and address. Fine--I upload a scan of my DL and a bank statement. Now I have a message saying that they do not accept bank statements. This is asinine, considering that their non-modifiable drop down menu of document types DOES include bank statement as an option to upload.

They ask me to upload a mortgage statement or a utility bill. Bad news NWFCU--I just moved, am renting from a private owner, and all my bills are paid in my rent. The only bill I have is my mobile phone.

I went ahead and sent them my phone bill info. I also tracked down my USPS change of address online and uploaded a PDF of that. If they still give me grief, I'm going to have to give up. It has been over a week with no progress.

I also wasted close to an hour on the phone with them. 45 minutes of which was wait time for two separate calls.
