South Carolina State Credit Union Review

I have banked exclusively with the South Carolina State Credit Union for essentially my entire life. I am 30 years old, and set up my account initially when I was 10 years old. This was just a simple savings account that my family encouraged me to set up. I was able to open this account due to a family member being a member already, but the process of joining the credit union is very simple.

I currently keep a savings account at this particular credit union, but not my normal checking system. I choose to use a national bank as a checking account, due to the amount of available ATM's. I have however, utilized the credit union for 2 auto loans throughout my life and will do so again if I ever finance another car. The rates were MUCH lower than any other national outlet, and the process was very simple. I will be purchasing my first home in a few years, and will be financing my purchase with a mortgage through this credit union.

Overall the ease of use is there and the customer service cannot be beat. I would encourage anyone in the state of South Carolina to use this institution for their banking and financial needs.

On A First Name Basis

Posted by: |

South Carolina State Credit Union is a small credit union in South Carolina open to all state employees and their families. As my father was a state employee for many years I was able to open an account there. Because it is such a small bank it was a great first bank. You got to know the people that handle your money on a first name basis. I have never had to wait in a line to be served at South Carolina State Credit Union which is very different from many other "big name" banks. Even if you are not a state employee the bank employees will do everything in your power to find a way to make you a member! Great staff & excellent loan and savings rates too!

No Member Support

SCU bank is the worst! Home advisor pro scammed me and stole over $1,000 from my savings and this bank will not do a fraud dispute and after numerous other issues id suggest anyone who is serious about their money not bank here you will lose it before you can even think about saving it

CUSTOMER SERVICE IS HORRIBLE & WILL CHARGE YOU FEES FOR EVERYTHING

Posted by: |

CUSTOMER SERVICE IS HORRIBLE!!!!!! WHEN YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW UP NUMEROUS TIMES ON A MATTER, TALK TO A SUPERVISOR - WHO DOES NOT CARE- DOES NOT ASSIST IN RESOLVING YOUR ISSUE, IT'S TIME TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. THIS BANK HAS LOST ITS CHARM. BREATHE IN THE BANK, AND THEY CHARGE YOU A FEE.
