When to File a Complaint
First, attempt to resolve the issue directly with your credit union. You can do this over the phone, in person or in writing. If this is not successful, you may file a complaint with NCUA against your federal credit union. Use our chart to determine whether you belong to a federal credit union, a state-chartered credit union, or another financial institution.
What to Expect
Once we receive your complaint, we will acknowledge its receipt. NCUA will keep you apprised of the status of your complaint. The process generally takes about 60 days. Depending on the credit union's response or the type of complaint, we may take additional steps or use a different approach. If we do, we will notify you in writing.
How to Submit Your Complaint
If you have a complaint regarding the regulation of your Federal Credit Union, you may send your complaint online to the Office of Consumer Protection. Or, you could send a letter, fax or email regarding your complaint. The complaint must include your name and postal address.
