Get Your Membership Application In Fast For Veridian Credit Union, "Easy Membership" Status Seems To Be Closing Soon! - 7/19/2018

I received an email yesterday from Dwolla saying that my account was closed/suspended due to inactivity. My account did indeed have zero activity, and was only opened to gain Veridian Credit Union membership after the fiasco with them last year (the confusion over the change in easy membership status). Curious about my closed account, I emailed them, mentioning that I still would like to join Veridian at some point using this method, and they explained that "Unfortunately Dwolla has made the decision to sunset the Transfer product and focus on our new business focused Platform. We appreciate your interest in Dwolla, but your account must remain closed." I called up Veridian, and while the CSR was helpful, he didn't seem to understand that Dwolla was systematically closing down all personal accounts, making their stated method of securing membership soon obsolete.

Great Staff

I opened my CD special today, they were friendly and helpful.

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.

Ridiculously Low ACH Limits To Deposit & Withdraw

Posted by: pwj7050 | Sep 26, 2017

Two weeks ago I opened my first 15 month CD yielding 1.81%. I decided to open another one last week, but I was told that the daily/monthly limits to ACH funds from my external account were $2,500/$5,000.

Those limits are much too low for me since I planned on opening another $75,000 in CD's. As a result, I requested an increase. The increase granted was their maximum which are a daily/monthly limits of $10,000/$20,000.

Those limits are still much too low, but they refuse to increase them and told me that my only options were to PAY for a wire transfer, which I refuse out of principle to do, or to mail them a check! Unbelievable, what is this the 1980's? They are a $3 billion bank but behave like a mom and pop shop!

Veridian just lost a good customer.

This path to membership can be found at https://www.veridiancu.org/contact-us?kbid=10740.

As a result of this change to Dwolla, I put in the application today for their $5 Member Equity Savings account in case any good future CD deals come up. I would recommend that if you have any future interest in any of the Veridian CD deals, open up a Dwolla account (if still possible, I'm not sure if they are even letting people still do that) and sign up for a membership, pronto.

Some more info on the membership: $5 minimum for a member share, inactivity fee of $15 annually after 12 months of no activity (push and pull $1 in and out), and using their free ACH system there is a $2000 daily limit, $5000 weekly limit, and $10,000 monthly, so use an external ACH system instead to get money in and out.
