Founded in 1948 by just eight people with $5 apiece, Andrews Federal Credit Union now provides a variety of financial products and services to over 120,000 members throughout Washington, DC, Maryland, New Jersey, and Virginia. It also serves members at select military outposts in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

There are a variety of personal depository banking products available from the credit union. These include savings accounts, checking accounts, Certificates of Deposit (CDs), and money market accounts. Andrews Federal Credit Union requires a basic savings account for membership, but it also offers Individual Retirement Account (IRA) savings accounts, as well as holiday savings accounts, vacation savings accounts, and youth savings accounts. As for checking accounts, the credit union provides both non-interest-bearing and interest-bearing options, depending upon the account balance. Standard CDs are available, as well as Traditional, Educational, and Roth IRAs available as CDs. CD terms range from 6 months to 84 months, and higher interest rates are available for larger “jumbo” CD balances. The credit union also offers personal loans, credit, insurance, and investment services.

Andrews Federal Credit Union also provides business savings accounts and business checking accounts. The latter vary by account balance and number of transactions. In addition to these deposit account products, business loans and other business services – such as payroll and merchant processing – are also available.

Just Opened 7-Yr 3% IRA CD's Remotely

Posted by: kaimen | Mar 29, 2016

As a remote customer not related to Andrews I'd say the service is pretty good and the process went smoothly.

The steps include -
1. Joining ACC online
2. Joining AFCU online (both instantaneous, pay $5 each with credit card)
3. Print/fill out and priority mail Trustee-to-Trustee fund transfer request form (form 302 from website) to AFCU (2-day)
4. AFCU mails request form to Fidelity (2-day)
5. Fidelity wires fund to AFCU (free from Fidelity and no charge for inbound from AFCU).
6. In the meantime print/fill out an IRA application form (form 98 from website) then scan/email to AFCU before the arrival of the fund.
7. Rate is locked once fund is received.

Best CD, Inconsistent Customer Service

Posted by: gnarlycow | Dec 22, 2016

Andrews' 7-year holiday special CD is the best at this time, with 3.01% APY and 180-day interest early withdrawal penalty. Even if I withdraw everything after two years, the effective APY is still >2%.

I applied for membership online. They asked for ID verification docs which I uploaded right away. After that I didn't hear from them for a whole month! I then left them a message asking what was taking so long. It turned out they wanted one more thing from me - proof of address. Once I uploaded that, they approved my application.

I went to a local CU branch and deposited a check to my Andrews' savings through co-op. Then I called Andrews to open the CD, but the first rep told me they cannot open new account over the phone... I just thanked her, hung up, and called again. This second rep was fantastic; took care of the opening process under two minutes.

Often Has Good CD Specials

I joined for the chip-and-PIN card to travel in Europe, and it's worked well for me. Like many credit unions, they wanted a bit more documentation (pay stubs, etc) than is typical for large national banks, but that was a price well worth paying because the large national banks still love chip-and-signature and it can be hard to get a card that works right in Europe.

I also occasionally take advantage of CD specials, like the current 3% holiday special (available in your choice of either 3 month or 84 month terms, but nothing in between).

Unlike some other reviews, I didn't find the membership process to be too bad, but there wasn't a high volume of new members stampeding for a special when I joined, either.
