Not That Bad :-)

Posted by: 51hh | Nov 25, 2016

Reading all the negative reviews, I feel bad for PSCU.

Actually their service is fine; they answered all my questions timely. The recent event was concerning the cancellation of my debit card since I have not used it for a while. They quickly sent the new debit card to me followed by password.

I do not like their RCA package (4%, only $7.5K; only one account allowed). They used to be much more generous.

I do not use their other services, e.g., loan, credit cards. But I assume it will be similar to those of RCA services.

Anyhow, PSCU went out their ways to read the reviews here and responded positively to them. That is much better than most other credit unions/banks.

I would suggest that we can work with the credit union patiently should issues arrise and afford PSCU an opportunity to make corrections and improvement accordingly.

Worst Credit Union

Pelican State Credit Union is by far, the worst credit union I have ever used. They are not set up to accept automatic transfers from any bank to this credit union. The only way an outside bank can transfer into this credit union is by bill pay only.

If you don't have great credit, then you might want to re-consider applying for a loan here. This credit union only caters to people with great credit. They make lots of excuses for denying loans. On top of that, every time this credit union denies you a loan, they take 5 dollars out of your account. They offer free credit counseling and when you talk to the counselor she tells you everything you already know. Once you do everything the counselor tells you to do, they still deny you, and then charge you once again. They are not willing to help you re-establish your credit.

They do not return emails. If you apply for a loan with the manager, she has one of her employees return the phone call of denial. Very poor service!


DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE! They sent me an offer in the mail in July to skip a payment in August. Needles to say, I took advantage of the offer. Well, here it is September 6th and I just received a notice saying that my account is delinquent! Called to speak to the local rep in Monroe, LA and as usual, they are always clueless about EVERYTHING! They never took ownership of their mistake and now my credit score has gone down 20 points because of their mistake! This is not my first bad experience with them, but I want go on and on. Trust me! Stay clear away from these people!

Great Rate

Pelican State has the most responsive staffs that address my questions and requests always in a timely manner. They also offer a great rate for the checking account which is a big plus. I hope in the future they will always continue to maintain the quality of the service and never stop to improve it.
