After enjoying their (4%, $25K) RCA for more than eight years with multiple accounts (there is a requirement of a maximum of two RCAs per social security, but we were grandfathered to surpass such a requirement), we finally received the RCA change effective 4/1/2018:

The debit card transaction needs to be at least $5 to qualify for the RCA requirement.

Reasonable requirement change, but a real problem for us, who have "numerous" (4%, $25K) RCAs. At least they gave advance notice for us to get prepared.

Misleading Reviews

All I can say is that the high RCA rate says everything. For those who qualify, we should be grateful. On top of it, their service is not bad at all.

I do think that the bad reviews here by no means reflect what this credit union is truly about. I, for one, enjoy the credit union (for more than five years) and am very appreciative of such a profitable long-term relationship with SWACU!!

Poor Customer Service

When I started coming to this CU the service was great. However over the last few years the service has become worse and worse.This was especially true when you call in. Multiple time I was hung up on or spent time transferring between multiple people. I chose to move my accounts to another CU that valued my business.

Re SWACU Changes

I am in the same situation as 51hh. I have 10 of their RCA's maxed out along with other RCA's scattered the countryside, so yes,it would be completely impossible for me to satisfy this new requirement. I am now in the process of looking at new options for my money. SWACU did give advanced warning, so like 51hh said, we can prepare and for that I am very grateful.

I wish they had lowered the rate rather than impose the 5.00 min., but it is what it is. I am going to call and speak with them about this and I am also going to post on their FB page my thoughts and suggestions. You think doing things like this make no difference and many times it doesn't, but every so often it does happen that enough public outcry does change an outcome. I have a RCA with a bank that a few years back made an unfavorable change to their RCA and I just started looking for a new place to move my money and never even thought about contacting them to voice my opinion. But, I guess they had enough people who did that before the change was to take place that instead they sent out notices saying that due to customer input, they had decided to not make that change, but instead make this change (they had come up with a new change~ that although wasn't as good as the original RCA~was more favorable to the customers than initial change they were going to do), so goes to show you never can tell. I am still with that bank as of today.

SWACU could lower the APY rate slightly, raise the required number of debits slightly and with the %rate they get off of each transaction plus the upfront fee they charge for each transaction to boot with the number of accounts they have with customers now that this change will not affect them in how much they spend but will insure they make a few more debit charges (bringing in a little more revenue for SWACU) and the interest pay out will be a few dollars less (again, a little more revenue for SWACU) and overall, I am positive this would be in SWACU's favor to satisfy the need for additional profit ore than the 5.00 in. debit change will produce. I am also confident no one would take their money out of SWACU for such a small change as this and it would still be lucrative enough in today's market to bring in new members. As the change stands now, I have a feeling SWACU will be seeing a lot of cash leaving out due to actual inability to meet the 5.00 min.debit charge change. I know when I look for RCA's, I look for the highest rate of course, but then I adjust that to the max. amount allowed and will pick an account with the higher max. account when there is only a small difference in APY and I never even give a look at one that requires a specified spending amount to qualify. I don't think I'm in this ballpark by myself.
