I'm a member of almost 10 credit unions and banks. I've found USPS to be at the top of the list on service and having great rates! The service reps have been polite, extremely helpful and fast in all of my transactions. The CU carries additional ins. above the FDIC limit so you get 500,000 per acct. I strongly give rebuttal to the review of being "Worst Credit Union Ever! My experience the past three years has been it's the best credit union ever!
I recently had a CD mature at U.S. Postal Service Federal Credit Union. To my shock, there is NO grace period when a CD matures. Any change made after the maturity date is subject to the early withdrawal penalty. My CD was at 3.25% and would have dropped to .45% (2 year term). I chose to withdraw the funds subject to the EWP and deposit the funds elsewhere at a higher interest rate for a shorter term. This was not "spelled out" in the maturity notice I received, however, I did find it in small print in some paperwork I received when I opened the account. I have never encountered a bank/credit union that did not have a grace period for a maturing CD. Beware!!!
They offer their members terrible rates at more than double any other bank's rates...insanely complicated loan applications...no available branches that will deal in cash transactions so if you want to make a cash deposit, or take out cash, you can't. You need to purchase a money order to make a deposit! Ridiculous!...Savings accounts that are useless unless you can keep more than 300 in it or they charge you 10.00 a mo. but yet they make you have one when you open a checking acct....Their electronic deposits are a joke since they still make you mail in the paper copy and if they don't get it, they take the money back out of your acct and charge you fees, so what is the point of having electronic deposits? Their not opened after 5pm and on weekends so if you need help with your acct...too bad...I could go on and on and on.
i just opened a CD 2 days ago.
i called the office in Raleigh, and the woman who helped me there, Rhonda, was fantastic. She walked me through it and instead of having to mail in the application (they don't do on line applications) she let me scan it and email it to her. Only drawback was I had to overnight the check for the CD (they don't do large ACH transfers). I am going to open another CD this coming Monday under the same name and she said all i need to do is send in the check - don't have to fill out new applicator for the new CD. I highly recommend them.
My account opening was smooth but required obtaining a membership a stamps.org and mailing bank opening forms and waiting about a week for the account to be opened. One star from rating because it was more complicated than most to open.
I was able to make large ACH originating from another bank TO USPSFCU with no problems. It took a couple days after I received my account information for the small deposits to show up at USPSFCU and then verified at my other bank. Faster than mail. And no surprises!
Opening the e-account was simple once the funds were received.
Also very fast response to my request for beneficiary form.
I have had a very good experience opening a 3% 2-year IRA CD, too bad it is not available for non-IRA $. Do be aware, however, that early withdrawals come with a 365 days interest penalty on this special offering, and this applies to the entire value of the CD even if you only need to make a partial withdrawal. Their terms state that any withdrawal serves to terminate the entire CD ... even if the withdrawal was needed for your annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). They do make a point of reminding you that they will not make an exception for RMDs and that you should keep enough $ in another accessible account to cover your RMDs.
I worked for the post office for a while so I was able to join the postal credit union. I didn't like it for a number of reasons. The hours of operation were very limited, and you would think they would take into consideration the typical hours a postal employee would work and stay open a little past those hours but they don't. Also, the fees for making a mistake were ridiculous. $35 over draft fees are a bit much, and they would charge that every time a check was presented for payment. Then if you tried to talk to them about it they would basically say well that is your fault sorry about your luck. All the employees seemed to be a little snobbish too. Could have just been the branch i went to though.
I had a terrible experience when just trying to apply for membership with the USPS Federal Credit Union.
Unprofessional customer service and non-existent communications.
There are much better credit unions out there that actually want your business. The USPS credit union does not want your business. Stay far away!
