Credit Union banking

Posted by: janieyork | Jun 23, 2017

I was hesitant to sign up with my credit union, because at the time I was unfamiliar with them. I thought that doing things only through my regular checking account was ideal for me. A chance came with my employer to join my credit union, and at first, I was going to pass it up, but because of the rewards involved, I decided "why not?" I signed up with my credit union, and haven't looked back since. I am very happy with my credit union bank. They have allowed me a chance to open a savings account with no fees required. They are small and independently owned, which means if I have a problem, I can reach someone from the local community to help me resolve it, instead of waiting on a hotline for hours on end. My account requires no minimum fee, and I am able to make deposits both online and through a branch. The branch hours are flexible, and the workers are professional and courteous. I am extremely happy that I made the decision to switch, and in my point of view, it's something that I should have done much sooner. I have no intention of looking back and returning to a large bank if I can help it.

Banking with Transit Federal Credit Union

Posted by: Iwantianc | Feb 18, 2018

I have been with this credit union for about 4 years. It is right down the street from me, and one day I decided to go and talk to them about opening an account because I wanted to switch to a credit union. I was immediately led into the office of a very knowledgeable representative of the bank. She went through all my questions and presented me with all the information that I needed to know in order to open my account. I was easily able to bring in my paycheck and have it begin to be deposited in my checking account. Anytime I have had trouble I have been able to contact them through their telephone number and they have been very patient with me. All in all, I personally feel like it is a much more intimate and pleasant experience than I previously had with banks.

Additional Factors: Institutions with a small asset base, a short operating history, or negative return on assets can represent an instability risk beyond what their financial ratios indicate. Transit Employees Federal Credit Union has a relatively low asset base.
