Banking in D.C.

I love my banking institutions. So, let me tell you a bit about each of them. If you’re looking for a good bank in the D.C. area, let me know.

The first is ING. Co-workers and friends really liked their service, I invest through their Sharebuilder arm, and have checking, savings, and an IRA with them. To deposit money, you pretty much have to have a local account you can use to make deposits. You get free withdrawals at 7/11s, which are all around D.C. They are an online bank, so no branches. Their online site is excellent.

The second is the United States Senate Federal Credit Union. This is the credit union I joined through work. Each credit union has different membership standards,  but this one is great because their ATMs are all around work, they have a branch there, and their home office is on Eisenhower Avenue, literally 3 minutes away from my condo. If you don’t know of a credit union near you, check out the credit union finder. Most other credit unions’ ATMs are free for withdrawal. USSFCU’s online site is well above average.

Third is Burke & Herbert Bank and Trust. Based in Alexandria, this is Virginia’s oldest bank. They have locations all throughout Old-Town and Northern Virginia. Their online site is average, but their customer service is unparalleled and their mailed statements are immaculate.

I highly recommend all of these institutions, but also suggest that you take the time to learn about financial institutions in your area and determine which one is best for you.
