Apple Federal Credit Union is a Virginia-based credit union that offers personal and business banking solutions, investment and insurance planning, and specific products and benefits designed for teachers and students.
Apple FCU offers savings, checking, money market, Certificate, and IRA accounts on its personal banking side. The credit union’s fee-free student checking account offers reward points for using its free check card and also comes with a limited number of non-Apple ATM transactions. Another checking account offer is dividend bearing and comes equipped with a free box of checks each year, a limited amount of non-Apple ATM transaction fee reimbursements, and no monthly fee when a minimum balance requirement is met. Several savings account options seek to meet various members’ needs and include a basic, student, and teacher savings account. The student savings account comes with a high dividend rate for balances up to a certain amount, and the teachers’ savings account is designed to help teachers maintain a regular income through the summer months when they may not receive a paycheck. Money Market accounts offer higher dividend rates when higher balances are achieved and provide convenient access to funds. Certificates and IRA Certificates are available in term lengths from 6 to 120 months and have been featured on DepositAccounts.com in the past.
Apple FCU online banking is a sophisticated system that offers comprehensive account management services, including fund transfers, bill pay, rewards activation, scan deposits, and money management software for budgeting purposes. The credit union’s mobile banking apps make it convenient and easy to accomplish the aforementioned tasks from select smartphones or tablet devices. Apple FCU is partnered with several ATM networks, including Alliance One, CO-OP, and MoneyPass, making it easy for members to gain access to their funds.
Apple Federal Credit Union was chartered in 1956 after a group of educators from the Fairfax County Public School system came together to organize a teacher-focused financial cooperative. The credit union is headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, and serves its members through multiple branches located across several states. Apple FCU also maintains a blog that publishes money lessons and tips for saving.
