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.

United States Senate Federal Credit Union

Posted by: Fanizered | Sep 13, 2017

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.

Delay In Joining USSFCU

Just got off the phone with customer service. USSFCU seems like a good credit union, however, they will not guarantee the promotional CD rate until they confirm your membership with United States Capitol Historical Society, and that could take a week or more. The rate probably will change October 1, so you probably will not be able to get the September rate.

Worst CU Ever

This is the worst credit union I have ever dealt with. Their online banking portal does not reflect accurate information and they don't really care. All they will tell you is to refer to your statements. Well I have opted OUT of paper statements, so apparently I have to long on, pull up copies of paper statements and go by that, NOT what the home screen tells me. Horrible Credit Union. Save yourself a lot of headache and go someplace else.
