Decent bank. Seems overly restrictive in user interface and security precautions

The interest rate on savings account seems to stay within the top 10-20%. They have a lot of security precautions which seem like overkill. The website seems old-timey (think 1999). Overall a decent bank for saving, but you can probably find better interest rates.

Excellent Service Online And By Phone.

I've been an emigrantdirect customer for over five years. I appreciate a well-designed web site that offers extra security. It's easy to transfer funds between accounts and from one or two of your brick-and-mortar banks, and easy to purchase cds. They've never made a mistake on my accounts, and their customer service both through online secure email and on the phone is friendly and efficient. I was very impressed with the way they handled a beneficiary transfer after the death of a friend who held an account with them. Interest rates rise and fall. Trying to chase the highest rate is futile. Staying with a trustworthy online bank such as emigrant has made my banking stress-free.

Great bank

I've been with the bank for some time now and find it superior to, for example, ING Direct. I only use it for a savings account so I can't remark on other services.
