Great service

I have been a customer with University Federal Credit Union for over a decade, and I can say that they have been helpful and courteous every step of the way. I'll start off by saying that their savings rates are not the most competitive in the industry, but they make up for it in quality service, where you feel that you will never be scammed out of your hard-earned money. As a student and staff member at my university, UFCU offers me early deposits for my paychecks, which is very welcome. Also, they set me up with two free checking accounts, one for online purchases only, after a scam incident (that was not their fault). They have worked hard to give me options to ensure I am not a victim of a scam, and are always trying to help me with my checking account needs. They have very competitive ATM fees, and are very lenient on overdraft fees. All in all, I think this credit union is the best "bank" I have dealt with in my lifetime.

UFCU Is A Great Option If You're In Austin

I primarily used UFCU when I was a student at UT. They have plenty of ATMs and several branches down around the UT campus. In all of my dealings with UFCU, I've found their customer service to be excellent. I have maintained an account with them over the years because it's easy to do and if I ever need a loan, they'll be one of the first places I look.

Lots of ATMs near UT's campus You can use the debit cards at other in-network credit union ATMs UFCU is not a big, for-profit bank. They don't look to rip you off in the same way Chase or BoA would. I'm told their loan terms are good, though I've never taken advantage of those myself. Great customer service Disadvantages:
Their ATM network--even when you include non-UCFU credit union ATMs--isn't huge All in all, I like UFCU quite a bit.

Slow Go To Get Money Out

FYI - just had large CD mature.

Turns out ACH to external account is limited to $10K, and only 6 transactions per month.

They participate at shared branch, but limit is $25K plus fees.

OK - just mail a check. No problem-o, here's your bill for $3 for us to make out a check.

Not the end of the world, but I have not seen this at any other credit union.

You can avoid the fee IF you are local and go into a branch. Not an option for me.

Change In EWP

Posted by: |

Jumbo cd 60 months at signing offered 180 ewp and no penalty for removing interest. To my dismay that was changed dramatically. If you look at UFCU 60 month fees no mention of charges on ewp or withdraws on interest. So calling them I asked about my original agreement. Three times I called just to make sure it was correct. EWP for 60 month jumbo cd is complete loss of interest. Same goes for withdrawing partial interest accrued. Bogus. Have other CD’s at other CU’s over the years and this was the first to reverse their policies. They can I guess but
this account will be closed on maturity.
