  • Yvana has been my go to person at the Credit Union for many years.  I know that whenever I have an issue I can always call on her at any time and she won't hesitate to help me out. Recently, my debit card was compromised and I noticed it after business hours so I wasn't sure of the proper protocol.  I called Yvana, she walked me through the entire process and I came in the next morning to resolve the issue with Eileen, who was also a great help.  The Credit Union is lucky to have such dedicated employees.

    Justin
  • I was worried about how I was going to fund some of my daughter's college tuition. Well thank goodness for Ms. Magaly. She told me to sit down, relax and explain my needs. I was truly expecting to be denied once again like at one of those banks that I've dealt with in the past.  Then she said "We have a loan that fits your needs and you qualify!"  All my worries suddenly went away. I can say that she definitely puts the members first.

  • I made it to the Kenilworth branch just before the 5 pm closing.  Even though it was late, Roberto patiently processed my loan – I’m sure on his own time. Then there’s Karina, who is so helpful and always has a smile. If I had a company, these people would be working for me!  You’re lucky to have staff members of this caliber!

    Ed
  • I am writing today to commend Lynn and express my gratitude for the high quality customer service she always provides whenever I call the Credit Union.  She is professional, courteous and patient.  I can feel her smile each and every time we talk on the phone.

    Elissa
  • I recently had an emergency and needed a Home Equity loan quickly.  My initial contact was with Aida and the loan was finalized by Sabrina.  This was a very stressful time for me and both of these women were professional, patient, knowledgeable and considerate. They answered all of my questions, explained the various options as well as the process.  They are an asset to the Credit Union.
