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.

Takes A While But Well Worth It

Posted by: ET | Jul 31, 2019

Took 8 working days to open an account due to high volume.

Excellent customer service each time.

Well worth the time and effort. Currently they have the best CD rates, 8 months 2.86% APY and 17 months 2.95% APY specials. Maximum deposit for each special share certificate is $250,000.00.

Good Customer Service

Posted by: patdante | May 4, 2019

I have been an IRA customer for over three years as Andrews have some of the best CD rates around. When I have questions on my account, I email Andrews and they respond within 24 hours with prompt and courteous answers. When my CD matures in another 4 years, I may keep it here if there rates stay competitive. Keep up the good work AFCU.

Not Only Very Long Wait On Phone To Talk To Rep But Rep Does Not Know The Answer And You Have A Second Wait

I made a deposit through shared branching for $100,000. I had been told previously by one rep that after I made the deposit I needed to call to have the money put into their advertised CD. I called and was told by the rep I spoke with that my money was on hold for 12 days and there was nothing that could be done until then. When I became upset with that response, she said she would transfer me to the main office. Luckily I was not disconnected but did have another long wait. I explained to the second rep that I did not want to withdraw the money, just open a CD. The second rep said she could open the CD and would have the hold removed. After a lengthy wait, she did so. Not an easy process. Were it not for the 9 mo. CD at 2.75% I would never deal with this credit union again.

85K CD Application Denied Due To Algorithm

Posted by: jlgayh76 | Jul 29, 2019

I and my wife's Andrews FCU application was just denied online for a 3.45 7 year CD. The online site didn't give a reason as to why my application was denied. I called customer service. The representative took about 15 minutes wait time, then told me that my application had been denied due to some type of algorithm they use. I said my credit rating and my wife's credit ratings were in the 800's. We are retired, own our own home, fully paid off and have substantial savings and net worth.
The rep said that credit scores were only part of the their algorithm score, but wouldn't divulge what other factors they consider.

I can't believe an institution that makes you go through all these hoops online to provide personal information and then at the last minute use some sort of "Star Chamber" secret scoring system to deny the funding of an Certificate of Deposit with them. I guess I should be glad they don't want my money so I can go elsewhere.

Never in my 60 years of life, have I ever been treated like this by a financial institution. For those thinking of using Andrews for anything, I would advise staying away, period!
