Credit Union Helped Me

I started my first job in the United States Senate and my paycheck was deposited into the United States Senate Federal Credit Union. I had never had two nickels to rub together and the credit union helped me save money. The credit union had great advisors who helped me plan for retirement by starting an IRA so I could have many options for investing for the future. The credit union has branches both in D.C. and in the suburbs where I lived so I could get cash from the ATM.They also made it super easy for me to transfer money to my family. Mostly, I loved the advice since I was so inexperienced and I became friends with the staff. Having advice was crucial for me and getting advice from the credit union made me feel like I was protected. Later, I had bank accounts with other banks that were always trying to sell me services and products that I didn't want or need. The credit union was more honest and objective and so I felt like I was being looked after like an equal, not treated like a cow to milk like the ripoff banks.

Watch Out For Credit Card Fees

I opened a new account with USSFCU and gave them my credit card to open it. When I received the charge on my credit card they also included a wire transfer fee of $15.00. Just send a check to open and not a credit card

My mother worked for 25 years for the US Senate. Because of this, my entire family had accounts with the USSFCU (United States Senate Federal Credit Union). Honestly, I have not used that account much. I do maintain a small balance in the checking account to keep it active. I like the aspects of the account. No monthly fees, unlimited check writing, free atm/debit cards and no service charges. They also have great customer service. I have had a few minor issues with my checking account and direct deposit not working and they were extremely fast to fix the issue. The other good thing about the USSFCU is that there is no minimum deposit to open an account there. If you are eligible for an account, you can open one for free.

Serving Customers Fees And Lies

Posted by: |

They will get over on you any way they can. They are worse than a traditional bank because at USSFCU not only are the fees more, but they are less compassionate, harder to contact about problems, and make it difficult to get your money.

There are people like Jonathan who just takes calls and don't resolve complaints and people like Cynthia Chambers who can reach out, but can't answer questions and pushes you off on a mindless employee. like Jonathan.

They just don't care about their customers or customer service unless they are servicing those customers fees.
