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.

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.

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

Posted by: Sukii | Jan 22, 2015

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!!

Easy Banking

Security Service Federal Credit Union is a wonderful small bank. The fact that it is so localized means that I have gotten to know my banker and they know me. I love that I can go into any branch around town if I loose my bank card, which happens a lot, and within 10 minutes after providing my ID and account number I have a new one! No waiting for the mail! Depositing checks has become even easier thanks to the mobile app that they released a few years go. And the money is in my account instantly no matter what time of day I deposit it. They also send alerts to my phone if my account is getting low which helps me not to overdraw and rack up fees. I also love how easy it is to move money between checking and savings accounts. And there is always someone available 24/7 if I ever have any questions or concerns regarding my account. I would definitely recommend them if you are in the market for a new bank.

Too Many Fees

My mother has been apart of the credit union for over twenty years, so when I turned 18, and got my first job I opened an account with them. Basically milked me dry with overdraft fees, and their customer service was absolutely awful to boot. I ended up eventually just canceling my account and taking my business to another bank.

Absolute Worst Financial Institution Ever!

Posted by: RLH | Apr 6, 2016

I am in the process of pulling my deposited funds from this institution. SSFCU would not allow me to add my wife to any of the accounts! I will pull every dime out of this place and will warn EVERYONE to NEVER have any dealings with them.
