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.

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?

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!


I have had a loan with this bank since 2006. It was an 8 yr loan and I'm still paying on it. They keep adding interest to the loan. I had flood insurance through them also and my home flooded out, the insurance company payed them the balance that was owed on the loan and the bank keep the remaining balance from the money from the insurance. THEY STOLE MY MONEY! Now I can even fix my home in living in with mole....and they didn't even care! What a local community bank!!!
