I like that Lyle Hamrick gave me information about my bank card such the set traveler app that allows me to pre postion my use of card when traveling out the state of Nebraska and Iowa so do not encounter a limitation of use of the bank card.

Lyle Hamrick is a HUGE team player for Veridain Credit Union anyone that visits this branch should ask for Llye Hamrick

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

Good And Bad

Posted by: |

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 Bank For Family Members

Posted by: |

I had a checking account with them, as did my adult daughter (legal adult). Eventually we moved out of state and began finding a new bank (veridian is not in our new state of residence). after a short time of our accounts sitting dormant and low on funds, some silly charge (like netflix or something) billed to my daughters account (an oversight on her getting everything transferred). Veridian contacted her via mail for her to contact them about a bunce of fees she owed. She contacted them only to learn that a small charge had gone through and Veridian tacked a bunch of charges on immediately, then more in a couple days....My daughter informed their personnel that she could drive over there on her next payday and clear the balance but they were not impressed. A few days later i logged in to my online banking to find that Veridian had Emptied the balance in My Account (towards her debt) and closed my account without even notifying me. The bank has since Reported the debt on My Credit and my credit score has tanked because of this. Stark Collections is the agency who is handling the Fraudulent claim against me and my credit. Their only response is "Pay your daughters debt and we'll remove it"..........
