Average Online Bank-Could Be Better

Posted by: Ravaan | Nov 21, 2018

Recently opened a new CD account here for the first time. Overall, I had a good experience with their online banking portal and timely ACH transfers. One bad thing is that you have to re-enter some of your personal details AGAIN when registering for online banking. These details were already submitted during account opening process. The system will NOT access it on its own. You have to give them again for online banking. Also, the system will NOT save the external account given to them for ACH transfer. You will have to register it again after your CD is funded. A bit archaic practice...

Another thing: You can add a beneficiary online during the account opening process, but the beneficiary will NOT show up in your account details online once the account is opened. (Strange!!) You cannot modify any beneficiary details online. You have send a notarized form to them every time you want to add/delete a beneficiary. Very restrictive and old-fashioned..

Very Low Daily Withdrawal Limit Of Only $5,000

It's hard to get money out - they have very low daily ACH limit - $5,000. You would need to write a check to yourself to get money out.
