I wish I knew the young Woman who helped me with my account, by the she helped me set up a savings account as well. Away I do most of my banking on line. My only income is my Social Security. My first experience with a Credit Union 1968. Years later I was in a Credit Union at the Philadelphia Naval Base. I love HFCU, it is free, the Staff is always polite and helpful, if they don't have an answer that they know they will surely find someone who can. My only drawback is the distance is 18 miles away. Thank you HFCU

Framingham, MA


a little more time consuming than necessary


The experience was too time consuming. The instructions on my matured cd indicated that I could open a thrive account over the phone. It took three phone calls and finally a visit to your Dorchester office to open it. I am very happy with the rate you offer but it should not have taken so many steps to get it. Your Dorchester office personnel are very pleasant but the office is understaffed. There were many people in line also stating that more staff is needed there. The people on the phones were very pleasant but had limited access to helping me.



Nice encounter!!


Very pleasant experience. Thank you!1
