69. I get the same service.....
of course it takes a while to do my banking-we like to chat when we are there. But if you have a problem or a serious need-they are there for you. I was setting up my daughter's account and we needed to know how she could access it at her college in another state. They set us up with the CU network, gave us a map to the CU near her college that works with them and it's hours, set up her account, linked it to mine, gave her overdraft protection, explained the benefits of getting a student loan from them and included the access number, and told her that they would help her in any way they could. Now I'd like to see mega bank give that kind of service.
