Bump Up 3.25 Percent 41 Month Cd - 3/19/2019

Veridian still has this cd. I opened one this morning. The rep told me he doesn't expect it to go away anytime soon but there are no guarantees

Top Notch - Veridian

I've been banking with Veridian ever since it was the John Deere Credit Union back in the early 90's. I absolutely love their service. I have on occasion, overwithdrawn my account in error and Veridian credits me back for the fees. Additionally, their money market account stayed competitive throughout the recession and only required a $1k deposit minimum. They're always pleasant to work with and their online chat feature has been operational for some time, even before most of the major big banks. I've had no issues trying to send funds to friends and family, using hte bill pay feature, or moving funds to and from accounts. Anytime I call, I'm on the phone for no more than 5min to solve my issue. Unfortunately I cannot bank in person as I currently live out of state, but the majority of my needs can be satisfied online. I would highly recommend this CU to anyone

Opened 25 Mo Jumbo CD Painlessly

Posted by: beth | Jun 1, 2016

Signed up for a Dwolla account, deposited $5 in the Veridian savings account, provided the CSR with a copy of a utility bill & notarized drivers license. Sent a check to Veridian with a note to open the CD, term, and amount. The CD was opened the same day they received the funds. Now I just have to get my beneficiaries added to the account. It took a little work but was able to get the 1.85% APY.

Good And Bad

Posted by: Tracey | Dec 8, 2018

To make a long story short, I needed to fund a jumbo CD from two sources, an ACH transfer and a check. The rate was .35% higher than a non-jumbo, so I couldn't just ipen two CD's. I spoke with a customer service rep who told me several very important wrong things.

First, he told me the rates change every Thursday. The good rep told me they change once a month. This was a Monday, and my ACH would not arrive by Wednesday. Then he told me, that was ok because I could add to an existing CD at the original rate. I asked him at least 5 times if he was sure it was true, and he said yes, he had done it for other customers. According to him, all I had to do was send a note in asking to add the money to my existing CD.

I ended up paying $22 to overnight a check to Veridian (with a note to add it to an existing jumbo CD I had opened 2 days before).

Then I spoke with Kristen, who was fantastic. She told me I could not add to an existing CD, so they would deposit the check into my savings account and wait for the ACH to arrive in my savings account. Then I could open one new jumbo CD. Since she said the rates change once a month, there was no hurry. (She even offered to send me a copy of the policy when I expressed doubt). You can't open the jumbo online. You open a regular and they raise the rate when they process it. I told her I was nervous about that, so she said she would watch for my money and call me when it was there; and then she would open the jumbo CD over the phone. And she did just that.

When a rep tells you something that sounds too good to be true, no matter how certain they are, call and ask another person.

Horrible Service

Extremely hard to deal with, refusing to endorse my State Farm Insurance issued storm damage claim checks UNLESS I deposited them in a Veridian account, and came to them when I would need to write a check to the repair contractors.
Downright belligerent and dogmatic in both tone and principle. All of this, when all I had was a home improvement line of credit, with a $0.00 balance. This company is a waste of your time. There are lenders out there that actually WANT your business.
