You can reach Delta Community’s customer service by phone and email. Live phone service is available 24/7, though it’s provided by a third-party representative after business hours.
Customers seem to like its iOS and Android mobile apps, giving them average ratings of 4.4 stars and 4.6 stars, respectively, out of a possible 5 stars. The credit union’s website is not loaded with bells and whistles, but it’s useful and easy to navigate.
When you open your checking account, a savings account will be set up as a source of overdraft protection at no charge. Automatic transfers from the savings account to cover any overdrafts also are free. You can link a Delta Community credit card or line of credit to your checking account to cover overdrafts, although these transfers will cost you $3 each.
You can opt into a Courtesy Pay service, which covers bounced checks and items such as electronic payments from your checking account up to a $500 limit. It lets your account go in the red while paying for transactions that would have been rejected otherwise. Each of these transactions will cost a nonsufficient funds fee of $35.
Delta Community doesn’t charge an additional fee for accounts with continuing negative balances.
No frills, no fees
One of the more appealing aspects of Delta Community is its no-frills simplicity. Unlike many financial institutions that have conditions and terms for waiving fees, Delta Community offers easy access to deposit accounts with no fees. Its interest rates aren’t bad, but you can do better if you want to maximize your savings interest.
