Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible service I have never banked with anyone who does not put the customer first! They make you wait 3 days for a check deposit to clear and mean while if for any reason your account goes negative the charge you fees even though you have deposited a check because they have to wait for it to clear!! The worst ever do not bank with them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, great customer service. After doing a few transactions through FAIRWINDS BEFORE I became a member, I realized they were professional, courteous and had everything I wanted and needed in a credit union. The choice was simple.
