Great Small Credit Union

Posted by: srog385 | Mar 27, 2019

I have been with Utah First for almost two years now. They offer personalized over the top service to their members.Whenever I had issues, they were solved in a quick fashion and they really want to help their members suceed. No other credit union I've had beats customer service quality. The one thing I dislike is that their website can be a bit confusing at times, and its very basic.

Quite Possibly The Easiest Out-Of-State Certificate Opening Ever

Extremely easy to open a certificate. They have methods in place to make secure verification and document exchange fast and easy. Very friendly service from Alli. Very competitive savings certificate rates at the time of this review. Highly recommend.

Great Customer Service And Support But Other Issues

Posted by: Spring | Jan 30, 2019

Customer Service woman was very, very helpful in getting the CD opened at a very competitive rate, 6 month penalty on a 5 year CD. You couldn't ask for better follow up and response! A couple of things came up though. On the funding page while filling out the online application there was a glitch in the program and I had to have customer service open up the CD manually. The online application has a problem and I hope they will fix as it caused a lot of extra work and agitation. I had to fund via bank wire since the ACH pull only goes up to $100.00. I somehow thought I could pull the whole amount out of my other bank after discussing it with someone there on the phone.
Overall, good customer service, rates and early withdrawal penalty.

Pleasant But Not Secure

Posted by: Gail | Apr 4, 2018

The bank has no real security policies in place and treats documents with personal information like SS numbers, birth dates and account numbers cavalierly with no regard for identity protection by sending them in plain text through email instead of through encrypted and secure channels. Be advised. Of course, the bank could start training its employees to use proper security and to require it as a bank policy, but there is no evidence of this yet.
