My parents had me open both savings and checking accounts with Wanigas when I was about 11 years old. The goal was to experience and become familiar with money management, which is an essential life skill. The representatives at the branch we usually visited were always personable and willing to go the extra mile for the customer. The very small minimum balances allow for anyone (including young people) to open an account. I was able to access my funds at Wanigas while traveling abroad in Mexico. I did require a password reset but even when calling internationally a representative was able to resolve this issue. As a local credit union, their online banking was not very strong at first but has improved to the point it is in keeping with other banks' systems. I no longer live near a branch but still keep my account open in case my parents, who still live in Saginaw, ever need financial assistance.
Money must be very tight at this credit union because they often turn down loans, even though a credit score over 725 isn't good enough at times. I have been rejected 2 times having a score of 735 sending me to a commercial bank for the loan I wanted for which they accepted me. Kind of makes you wonder who runs this credit union.
