Details On Opening An Account

Posted by: Anon456 | Feb 28, 2017

Well - - good news is that they did accept my paperwork and gave me the special CD rate. High marks there.

BUT, and this is a true story, I had mailed in my application snail mail on 2/3. Included my application and checks for share, checking, and CD.

I got in their member PASSPORT (new account) today 2/27/17.

Turns out, I had just dropped my wife's passport into the FEDS to have it renewed. That was 2/6. Got it back 2/23 using all normal mailing and shipping. So it took less time to get our official US PASSPORT renewed than it did to get this account opened at Transportation FCU.

Take away from this note: They may be OK or even good, but do not get in a hurry.

Close Call On Funding Promotional CD

Starting in February of 2016, this credit union had a promotional 3 year CD with an APY of 2.50%. Since they insisted on having you submit your membership application via snail mail, that slowed the process down considerably. Once they got the papework, the customer service people at the credit union were great. However, their marketing department that sets and rescinds the promotional CD rates left a lot to be desired. I say this because on February 16th, they cut the rate for the CD to 1.2%! Luckily, I received the promotional rate. However, this is a cautionary tale with regards to promotional CD's. Most of them have some sort of "subject to change at any time" caveats. This is the first time that I've experience a financial institution exercising that option in such a short amount of time. 16 days? I never would have gotten an IRA set-up and funded in that amount of time. Luckily, the CD that I created was for a taxable account and other than the membership application there wasn't any other paperwork involved. Whenever I pop for one of these "promotional" CD's, I alway fund a savings account first. Once that's cleared, I verify that the promotional CD rate still exists. If it does, I have them create the CD. If it doesn't this gives me the option of taking the money back out of the institution without incurring some sort of early withdrawal penalty. So far, I've never had to yank money right back out of a new account. However, it was a close call on this one.
