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.

This was the first time I had purchased a vehicle without going through a dealer for financing. When I went to the Credit Union I was seen immediately by the Loan Department. The Loan Officer was very knowledgeable. I was given a list of documents to gather and was promptly taken care of when I returned with them. My wife will be contacting your office about refinancing her student loans.
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.
Our Money Management Officer, Kassandra, was great to work with. I do not think she could do better.
