The McCormick building branch as the most friendly, helpful and knowledge staff around. The rates are very very good and so easy to open a new account or do business there. They are the best.

I am very pleased with Hanscom FCU and wish I'd found them before now! The only recommendation I'd make is that, when opening a new account online, show somewhere(or send an e-mail) advising the customer needs to wait to get their member number in the mail before they can proceed any further (i.e. before trying to log in and so forth). Friendly and helpful staff, thank you!

For people not working at the McLean site, it is a pain to visit the Hanscom office, particularly when there are no posted directions for where to park. Otherwise, service was efficient and knowledgeable.

Hanscom Federal Credit Union is the best financial institution for banking and investments. The customer service is peerless. Their rates for interest checking, savings, CDs and loans are the best I've seen anywhere. Since I started with Hanscom a few years ago, I gradually transferred all my accounts and other banking business to them. The other banks could not compare. Hanscom is simply the best!!! A+++++
