Navy Federal Credit Union members who anticipated seeing direct deposits posted into their accounts Friday morning … couldn’t, at least for a little while.

Taking to its Twitter account shortly after 8 a.m., eastern time,  the credit union informed members that it was aware of an unidentified "issue" that was causing a delay in the posting of deposits. A deluge of phone calls to its customer service center caused the wait time to speak with a representative to swell to over 40 minutes.

Shortly after 9 a.m., the credit union Tweeted the issue had been resolved, but provided no further information as to its cause.


NFCU experienced a similar outage Feb. 13 when both its mobile banking app and website were inaccessible to customers, causing them to receive an error message.
