Our Loan Officer, Arlene, was so nice to work with. Her knowledge of the loan process and her ability to listen for what we wanted in a mortgage made the transition go smoothly. A very nice experience.

I sincerely appreciate the personalized experience we receive from all of the staff at SFCU, whether it be the person greeting you at the front door, the tellers, the staff that helps with notarizations, mortgages or wire transfers. I have dealt with all of these areas at the Credit Union and have always been assisted in a timely, friendly and helpful manner. It is by far the best bank/credit union I do and have ever done business with.
In my 30+ years in Somerset, I have never seen a financial institution with such great service. Keep up the great work, you have a great deal to be proud of.
I have been a member for a very long time. I am always satisfied with whatever I need to do at the Credit Union. The staff is always accommodating and courteous. The hours of operation are also very convenient.
