Great banking without the fees

Posted by: Beck | Jun 12, 2015

I've been with this credit union for years. All fees are reasonable and far less than any other banking institution I've been with. I didn't realize how good I had it til I signed up with a bank in college. The amount of fees at a typical bank is horrifying. It was such a relief to go back to SFCU after college.

The staff is always friendly and helpful. Even when I called their main office, they were able to help me in a timely manner. Their hours might leave something to be desired, but I live in the middle of nowhere, so that's to be expected.

The site is straight forward and simple. I haven't noticed any downtime so far. The user interface could use a little make over, but functionally it works fine.

My experience with SFCU

I have been using SFCU for my banking for almost 10 years. They are a small, locally run bank that cares a lot about the community. They typically have smaller fees than the bigger banks do, but they offer all of the same services. I have a checking and savings account through them, and have used them in the past to get an auto loan. They are always helpful when i have questions and I never have to wait long to receive assistance. The only thing i would say could be improves would be there website. There have been times when the site is down or that i am unable tolog in and it hinders what i have been trying to do. Overall, SFCU is a good place to do your banking.

Generally Good Bank Experience

Posted by: OwlHead | Dec 2, 2016

The Sidney Federal Credit Union is, overall, a good bank. Generally, I have used this credit union for regular checking accounts, savings accounts, a mortgage account, as well as opening up a home equity line there. I do not like fees associated with the accounts, however, overall customer service has been generally fine. Sometimes there can be a high turnover rate. Generally, the employees appear pleasant, smiling, and helpful. The hours are okay, but could be a little better given that a lot of people begin work early in the morning and are not done with work until later on, perhaps after they are already closed. Of course, they follow the general guidelines for being closed on Federal holidays. Some of the branches of this credit union are open on Saturdays, while others do not appear to be open. Overall, it is a decent experience there.

Local Credit Union

I no longer do my day to day banking with the credit union because mistakes were made (and actually still are sometimes with the credit card I still hold with the establishment) Their branches are nice and clean, but I have had a lot of problems with their online/ mobile banking. I was constantly calling to unlock my account when my password questions were not accepted. Etc. Their customer service is good, but they go through tellers constantly so don't often see the same face. Leads to them not really knowing you or your needs. Their fees are low, and they are good about giving them back if there is a mistake, I just needed something different for day to day.
