FAIRWINDS Member Reviews

Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fairwinds IRA My husband and I were looking for a credit union to place our IRA's with. We called Fairwinds and made an appointment. We were greeted immediately when arriving and our appointment was handled timely. We discussed our options for transferring our IRA's, the paperwork was done and we were on our way. Everything we were told would happen, did happen, timely and professionally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iowa yankee It has been a pleasant experience for me dealing with the very professional employees at this branch. My experience was far from that at my last credit union.I am so glad I chose Fairwinds....thank you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't invest it there It was easy to open the IRA at the branch - we were in a pinch trying to get it down for the 2016 tax season. Later, when I inquired about moving the funds into an investment (like mutual funds) I would have to open a new IRA with their investment firm and transfer the funds into it. I wanted something easy to be able to move it into various fund offerings, etc, but that's not how their IRAs work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IRA I have been a member for years, when I needed advice about my IRA rollover I was able to seek help from financial advisor at your institution. I felt confident. Thank you

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ira transfer Have been trying to transfer funds from my ira for a month now and find out yesterday that the fairwinds rep did not have me complete a signature guarantee when I completed the paperwork with her. I now must go back into the office to complete the forms. The fairwinds rep was not very knowledgeable about the transfer process. I am not impressed by fairwinds at this point.
