Great Local Bank
I searched for a long time for a place to invest my CD and eCentral had the best rates. I was a bit leary of Credit Unions and the whole membership aspect but their customer service was outstanding and they explained everything - who knew it was so easy to have that kind of personal access to a bank. Five Stars.
Excellent Credit Union!
Actually, anyone can join Northrop Grumman Credit Union. I am not an employee of Metro or NG. There is a small fee ($10. I believe). Not only do they have great rates, but they are rated "sound" by bankrate.com and their financial ratios prove it. (You can check it for yourself at NCUA.) I've recently switched from a "below average" rated credit union (after being a member for 40+ years) and am very happy with my decision. It's a nice branch office that is reminiscent of what banking used to be about. No one tries to sell me anything! I just get excellent customer service that I can trust. It's worth the time to check them out.
Great Health Care for Seniors
Kaiser Permenente offers an excellent medical plan for seniors. There is no monthly premium and co-payments are low. Doctors are excellent, services complete.
Whether in person or over the phone....great service! Rates are competitive, too. No waiting in long lines like at the bank.
The customer service is excellent. Very easy to open an account. No hassels from the clerks when you have a question. They are always willing to help.
