Great Credit Union, Wonderful Personal Service

Velocity has been around Austin for more than 60 years.  Love the friendly and knowledgable employees.  You are treated like a VIP here, not a "number."

Not Competative These Days

Posted by: Anonymous | Oct 27, 2012

I have been with Velocity Credit Union for more than 30 years. The employees are great with wonderful customer service. I wonder why Velocity is paying such low CD, share, money market rates to their members. They use to be very competitive. I liked the fact I could do all my business with them, but that has changed and I am looking for new opportunities.

Velocity Credit Union Crooks

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE! They are crooks. They will nickel & dime you any way they can. I tried to be a responsible customer, setting up auto-payments, on their deadline, but they chose to charge me a day after to collect late fees. And get this, even though they saw I had auto-withdraw, they still won't reverse their late fees. Stay far, far away...they are definitely not worth your time or money!
