Excellent Customer Service

RATINGS 5 5 / 5 stars

Each time I enter the new location of DCU in Leominster/Lancaster on route 117 I am greeted by nice people who are welcoming, respectful and helpful. The place is very clean, which makes me feel good about being there. I know it's arbitrary but it actually does count for something.

RATINGS 5 5 / 5 stars

DCU's IRA folks are tax experts, friendly and more importantly, work at the lightening fast speed! With just a few days left in the tax year, I called the service center in the afternoon, explained the situation, she immediately conferenced me with the IRA team who suggested the best alternative for my tax situation...
