Great Customer Service

Posted by: Logan | Oct 19, 2014

After switching from BOA to SECU I cannot be more happy with the way I am treated from branch to branch. I'm not just a drop in the hat to them and they want to resolve everything for you at the time you visit the instore. My only gripe would be the online transaction tracking does not show real time like the big name above. Usually within 24 hours all of the previous days transactions post.

SECU is the alternative to the big banks that you have been looking for

Posted by: ROFL | Sep 28, 2016

SECU is Maryland's leading credit union, and I have had a personal savings and checking account with them for ten years. Their rates blow the big banks rates out of the water, especially if you sign up for a long term program. They give incentives for this type of patronage and makes the deal work great for both parties. I prefer credit unions over others by a good margin, and this specific credit union by an even larger margin.

No Complaints! Great Rates!

To begin, no financial institution is perfect! But SECU has made me feel secure, valued and important as a consumer using their Credit Union for the majority of my banking needs. I have banked with several other popular major public banks in the past and have been severely disappointed with them all. SECU's website, employees, fraud protection services and NEW ATM banking system are incredible, safe and up to date. I look forward to being a member with them in the years to come.

Don't Do Business With SECU

SECU is the worst. The reviewers who say Secu is great are plants. Employees who write these bogus experiences trying to convince you this is a good bank. It’s not. Do a little investigating. You’ll see.
I refinanced with them a few years ago. Totally disorganized. I should have realized it then. They took almost 4 months to close. I had to do everything. When I was with other banking companies, they did all the work. All I had to do was sign. Also, they lied to me. They said they provide bi-weekly payments, and they kept stating it until we closed. Well, guess what? They don’t provide bi-weekly payments.
Next, they increased my mtg by $300 per month. That’s right, $300 per month. Gave me a bunch of B.S. excuses, saying they made mistakes with calculations, this went up, that went up, etc. I have been in my home for 15yrs. This has NEVER happened until SECU.
Every time I call them they don’t know what’s going on. Please hold, or do I mind if they put me on hold for a moment. They need verification of who I am every time I speak to someone different, or when I want to pay my bill. Who in the hell is going to call them other than me to pay my bill? Sheesh. Also, the phone people will tell you they provide certain services and the branch people don’t have a clue. This bank is the worst. If I could undo my refi, I would.
Do not go to SECU. You will regret it.

SECU Claims Best CD Rates In Maryland

SECU is claiming to have the best CD rates in Maryland for certain maturities:
5 years 2.30% APY
4 years 2.00% APY
3 years 1.75% APY
The fine print:
**Compared to the largest 15 financial institutions in Maryland ranked by deposits

The 4-year rate is certainly stretching a point, since NASA CU has the same rate for 49 months.
