Dealt with an IRA CD Expert

5

Got to talk with an IRA CD expert who knew the rules for Minimum Required Distribution (RMD) and knew the HFCU rules for those CDs. Earlier I changed the term of my IRA CD so that I could pay the RMD when required. The term was 30 months instead of my usual 60 months. Staff member told me I could go to 60 months because there is no penalty for withdrawing the RMD. No staff member explained that to me in the past. BTW: I recently got a 12 month CD from another credit union at 3.04%

Great Service

Was time to renew some CDs, and the transaction was complicated. Roberta did an excellent job with this complicated transaction. She also suggested a different term with a significantly better interest rate. Just outstanding service!!!!

A somewhat complex transaction that required a wire transfer through a corporate credit union ( Eascorp ). Handled efficiently and smoothly by 2 staff members at the Great Road Bedford office . . . Matt ……. and Sam ( ? ) .

Best Banking Experience!

We have been members of HFCU since 1995 (and even before that when we lived in MA during 1977-1979). It has been easy to do business with HFCU and their rates--and the products they offer--are excellent. I particularly like the CD rates and the availability of High Yield Savings accounts, as well as the Thrive Accounts. My children, who received college scholarships from HFCU, are also members. It's no wonder that HFCU does well in national rankings of credit unions--they have earned it!
