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.

I have moved to California, but still have never found such a great banking institution as Apple Federal Credit Union. It seems like with all the big banks, banking has lost its touch with the tellers and branch managers knowing you personally. I have to say even though I'm in California and banking in Virginia can be tricky, I would trade this bank for anything in the world. The branch manager Manjit, I opened my account with years ago in Centreville, still remembered me and my children. When I was in a pinch and needed assistance she came through with flying colors and is such an amazing person. 5 stars from me!
When Apple FCU first came around they seemed good. I have been a member for over 10 years. Service has plummeted since then. With decreasing service over the years, I shifted all of my money out of Apple. They are now just like any ordinary bank. Unexpected fees, unsatisfactory wait times, phone calls pushing loans, tellers that seem like you are bothering them, etc. Look elsewhere if you want friendly, neighborly customer service from a credit union that is actually interested in having you as a member.
