Terrible! Fees Galore And Bad Products. I LEFT Them!

Posted by: |

I was a member of the local Musicians Credit Union, which was small, but okay. Then they decided to be taken over by SAG-AFTRA CU, and I became a member of SAG-AFTRA CU. It didn't last long. I was so repulsed by their sky-high fees (including for things that no other CU charges for) that I closed out all my accounts and left them for good. Good riddance.
Fees up the wazoo for anything and everything, terrible customer service, and products that are nothing to warrant joining them for. Do yourself a favor and find somewhere else. Don't bank here just because you're in SAG. You'll regret it. There are plenty of wonderful all-access credit unions (like Alliant, for one -- but many, many others, including many local SoCal ones too) that are light years better than this place.

I can't put it better than this: I'm a member of multiple credit unions, but I never actually LEFT one -- and closed out all my accounts -- until SAG-AFTRA.

Go elsewhere.

Terrible Performance And Customer Service

Posted by: |

Wrote a check to one of their members with an older WAMU check on my Chase account.  Have never had a problem with the older checks which are guaranteed by Chase.  The Sag clearinghouse said they could not find the account so the check was not honored and their member was charged a fee.  SAG refused to step up and take accountability for the mistake of the clearinghouse even tho I had Chase on the phone with me telling them it was a mistake.  Finally, I convinced them that if it wasn't my fault and it wasn't Chase's fault and it wasn't their member's fault, that thy should refund the fee, which they said they would do when their member called.

Given it was their clearinghouse's mistake and SAG should be taking it up with them, they would not just give the member the refund, it became that person's responsibility to call them to get the credit. 

Terrible customer service, head in the sand attitude, incompenence at every level.  I had to get on a conference call with Chase and fight with them for an hour.  BTW, it's still not all sorted out.
