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.

Good Service, Great Rates, Contingent Beneficiaries, Not So Good.

A lot of negative reviews here. I'm not one of them. They have always been attentive to my calls. I Kasasa with them for 4% and maintain over 100K in savings and CDs

One thing they should do is allow depositors to create contingent beneficiaries; other banks do.
Whats holding it up?

Poor Customer Services By Phone , So Upset !!!

Posted by: qd1 | Jul 10, 2019

I am wondering why those representatives at the call center this week have been avoiding to help me with depositing money from my other institution debit cards to my Pelican checking and savings accounts. Some of them didn't even know how to do it. Some of them made me wait for very long on the line until I gave up waiting and having to hand up the calls. Some of them had bad attitudes on me as if I were wasting their times. Today, I have to say that they made me feel so upset, and there's no reason for me to stand it anymore. I have just decided to move ALL of my money from my Pelican checking account to my another institution account. If you don't need me as your customer anymore, just let me know and I would just go. Don't ever try to treat me poorly like that.

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!
