SEFCU (State Employees Federal Credit Union) is a small credit union with branches around upstate New York. I have three accounts there because they are a pleasure to work with. At my old credit union, I used to bounce checks regularly -- because they held all of my deposits for days (including my state paycheck!), but debited any outgoing checks in milliseconds. So they collected tons of fees. My financial habits haven't changed, but I've never had to pay an overdraft fee at SEFCU because they apply the same timing to incoming and outgoing checks. The credit union offers a full range of checking, savings, CDs and loans with competitive rates. None of my accounts are large, but the employees at SEFCU treat me with respect. At the branch I visit most often, the tellers greet me by my first name before I get to the counter. ATMs are conveniently located and do not charge any fees. Some branches have coin-counting machines, with the option of depositing some or all of the coin total directly into your account -- this is quick and convenient if you accumulate pennies and nickels like I do.

SEFCU is a great credit union.

SEFCU (State Employee's Federal Credit Union) has met all of my banking needs completely while avoiding the hassles that accompanying using a big bank. Formerly open to only NYS employees, the credit union has expanded and is better than ever. Their online account management site and mobile app are modern and seamless, and allow for all the modern features you love such as automatic payments, online transfers via your cellphone, and statement viewing. The customer service is outstanding, no waiting in line as tellers take forever to do the most menial tasks. I've heard a rumor that SEFCU pays it's tellers quite a bit more than the average bank or credit union, and I feel it shows. I have become quite close to several tellers there who know me by first name and are quite lovely people. I fully recommend this credit union. Quick tip, if you are a New York State employee, SEFCU will have your direct deposit a full business day before every other bank and credit union.
