Great Bank With No Fees!

I have been a member of Service Credit Union since I became an adult 15 years ago.  Since the 1990s I have been nothing but thrilled with this bank.  Their fees are minimal.  I don’t pay any type of checking account or savings account fees at all and I have free use of all SCU ATMs.  If I use another ATM, I do pay a $2.00 fee which is minimal as I rarely have the need to do that.  I have been very happy with my debit card and have had very few issues other than forgetting my PIN.  Any time I have visited a branch the tellers have been very warm and welcoming.  Most of them seem to recognize you after a few times of going there.  I have also called to inquire at various times about services and the phone number always allows you to reach a person who can help.  Internet banking is smooth.  I am a very satisfied customer!

Service Federal Credit Union

The site needs to be updated it seems kind of old and the services offered should compete with Bank of America and other big banks. The looks would chase me away from doing business with them, regardless of their rates.


Posted by: NOTHAPPY12 | Feb 8, 2013

I have recently moved up here to NH and started an account with Service Credit Union. I mostly do my banking online but when I need to go to the bank I go to the location in Walmart. I have NEVER experienced the unprofessionalism in a bank like there is here. There is an emplyee named that has the worst mouth and such a poor attitude about other Service Credit Union branch employees. For one she gets too personal with account holders. She has given out information on other peoples accounts to other account holders. This type of service has reflected my opinion on going with another bank, as I DO NOT want my information shared or talked about with other people. That is nobody else's business but MINE!!

Pants On Fire

They really ought to mix things upwhen they write their own reviews. Why are the only positive reviews a) from folks who lwant to talk how theyve been with the bank since they were kids b) babble about how "seamless" on-line bankins is and c) think we care that their tellers recognize some kid by name.

Clearly one person writing multiple reviews. What a job description that one must have.
