Security Service FCU is a large, Texas-based credit that offers its members a wide range of personal and commercial products and services. It also provides home and consumer loans on the lending side of its business.

Its checking accounts range from standard and free, to interest bearing with requirements, to youth-focused accounts that come with a debit card and free checks. Security Service’s basic savings and money market accounts offer unlimited ATM transactions and have low minimum opening balance requirements. Its Club Savings account does not allow for withdrawal due to its higher rate of interest return. CDs and IRA CDs are also available in term lengths from 3 months to 7 years, and one CD account allows for penalty free withdrawals. DepositAccounts.com has recognized security Service in the past for its CD offerings. The credit union also provides access to investment and insurance products through its agents. On it business banking side, it offers many deposit accounts that are similar to its personal products. Security Service FCU also has a rewards program that gives incentives to members to both save and spend.

Security Service FCU online banking was the first credit union in the San Antonio area to implement the feature for its members. It has a network of Security Service ATMs and is also a member of the CO-OP ATM network. Its web-based banking platform provides members with the ability to perform account management functions like bill pay, paperless statements, fund transfers, and ordering checks.

Security Service FCU was chartered in 1956 and is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. It was originally organized to serve the needs of members of the U.S. Air Force Security Service and has since expanded its membership after acquiring dozens of credit unions over the years. The credit union offers scholarship opportunities to local high school students as it seeks to provide a community-oriented atmosphere among its members.

Excellent Bank & Service!!

I love this Bank always reliable & trustworthy. Chris is always fast & helpful! As is the other employees no complaints.

This credit union has become an intergral part of my life!

Posted by: |

I've had several banks and one other credit union in the past and I've never felt as if I've mattered to any of them. But at SSFCU I know that I'm not just some other random person! The employees at this credit union have gone out of the way not only to help us get the best loans but to help us when we recently moved out of state and ran into some problem with getting our new direct deposit set up! The person who attended us stayed 2 hours after her shift ended to ensure our documents were received and recorded so our loan payment would not be late!! I don't know of any other bank establishment caring so much as to even stay open for another 5 minutes to help someone in need!!

Security Service Federal Credit Union

I have a been member at Security Service Federal Credit Union for well over a year. In my time with the credit union, I have had absolutely no issues. My checking and savings accounts have no fees associated with them, due to my have having direct deposit and maintaining a minimum balance.

Mobile Phone Coverage Scam

Mobile Phone Protection is a scam. I was impressed with this perk and didn't expect it to be perfect, but reality seems it is literally non-existent. Took me 20 minutes on hold with their 800 number just to get the "non-account number Monitoring ID" required to file a claim with their 3rd party insurance provider. After finally having the information I needed and answering all of the required claims prompts, I got this message:

Thank you! Your claim has been successfully submitted!

Our Claims Department will contact you as soon as possible. Please wait to hear from your adjuster before proceeding with any repair.

Your claim number will be assigned and provided by your adjuster once the claim has been reviewed.

Thank you for using Worth Ave. Group

3 DAYS LATER AND NO CONTACT OR FOLLOW UP....SO... MORAL OF THIS STORY, you can expect to be without a phone if yours isn't functioning, for as long as they feel like leaving you without one, and expect you to NOT REPAIR IT, until they get back to you... with no indication of when that might be. OH and they only ask for your phone number to contact you... that's pretty ridiculous when they know you have a damaged, stolen, or lost phone! Nowhere did it ask for an email or alternate method of contact.

I intend to find another bank just because this makes me feel scammed. It's been 24 hours since my claim was filed, nor any contact from anyone, no idea when to expect contact. No number for my claim, not any means to contact anyone about my claim and ask any questions.

SERIOUSLY FALSE MARKETING on SSFCU part!
