Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Professional Establishment I have been a member of Apple Federal Credit Union since the 90’s and have enjoyed this union ever since. If I ever had issues or questions about their services, a customer-friendly representative always provided professional knowledgeable support. There has never been question that I have asked that was not resolved. When I lost by job, they worked with me to lower my monthly payments, which was a tremendous help. I'm just the average customer, but the staff always been made feel important at any branch I visited or any phone call I made to the establishment. I would gladly and have recommended Apple Federal Credit Union to everyone I know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relief for Educators & A+ for Apple FCU It used to be that teachers had a choice when it came to being paid in the summer; YES or NO. My school district does not give teachers the option to be paid in the summer. Apple FCU's Summer Pay program essentially takes care of that! Each month, Apple takes money from my paycheck and puts it in a special account. In the summer, the money is then distributed equally each month! I no longer have to worry about how I am going to cover summer expenses nor do I have to calculate the money during the school year. It is easy to start, easy to maintain and keep track of, and the staff at Apple FCU are incredibly knowledgeable about this program. I am continuously recommending it to all my fellow educators.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best America car loan. I wanted to buy an old car in auction but I decided to go to the dealers to find out if I can get a used but new car. I chose a Toyota Corolla 2014 but neither my pocket, nor my credit can't pay the price. The seller led me to the financing representative. He tried a first financing institute that didn't accept . He said: " let's go to Apple Federal Credit Union". After a while, he came back to us and said:" they agreed ". And everything went well and I got my dream car that I'll finish to pay in six years at a very very low interest. I grabbed my keys really excited. Thank you Apple Federal Credit Union for helping needy people who don't have means.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome savings account I had my extra student savings account from ages 16-23 and it was so helpful. When I moved out of state, I almost switched banks but I couldn't find any with rates as good as this one. Being a young adult on my own, it was hard to keep money in my account after all the bills were paid, but seeing how much I earned even with my little amount in there made it worth it. I would recommend this account to anyone and everyone eligible! The app was easy to use and understand and the breakdown of my account was fun to see and helped me manage my money better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feeling like a queen! I opened a savings account with Apple Federal about six years ago, when an offer was made at my school to receive money for the account for opening it. Each year, I add a bit to the account in order to prevent it from being closed. I have been treated very well every time I enter the lobby to make the deposit. The lobby is attractive, the clerks at the counter smile at me and help me with speedy professionalism. I receive a discount on my insurance due to the account, which is the main reason I opened the account. I am appreciative of the services of Apple Federal and the benefits from the account. I have only positive thoughts and comments. I am grateful for this avenue for savings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kid's Saving Account I'm a baby still, so I have no conception of the benefits of saving, or even money itself. In fact, I'm still illiterate and have barely managed a "Mama". That said, I'm well on my way to paying for my first car, or college, thanks to the easy way my parents can connect their accounts to mine and transfer gifts in. I don't know it yet, but I'm a pretty lucky little girl! The only problem Dad complains about is not having the account on the same page online as his own- he has to switch back and forth. If they'd fix that I'm sure he would have nothing but good things to say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Plain Easy The thing that I like about my accounts with Apple Federal is they are simple to work with. I can easily transfer money I have in one account to another account. It doesn't take as long as other banks either. The online platform is built very well and makes understanding your balance and account history easy. When I opened my account with Apple Federal they did not have mobile banking. I was very pleased with the mobile version that they released. It just like the web version is straight to the point without the unescessery clicking. I always turn to Apple Federal first when in search for a loan or other financial needs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from slow service Sometimes people can't go during "business hours"...when we do go to local branch to do business, seems there is always an hour wait, and the last time-there was only one customer talking with the banker. So why an hour? Also was there first Saturday of December to add saving, open CC card acct-and over two weeks later-still no card. Funny-same day change another bank accounts, ordered new checks, new cards-got them in 3 days. but Apple needs over 2 weeks to send new cards? Sad, and I have to rethink my account-should have gone w/ my regular bank-the response times would have been greatly improved. Step up your game Apple, or your gonna lose a "new" customer before you get started.

I'm want to transfer $ from an IRA to a new money market acct at the credit union. What are the steps I need to take?

Asked by: Brenda 70
If the IRA is at Apple FCU, please complete the IRA withdrawal request found here: https://www.applefcu.org/Savings/IRA (at the bottom, click 'manage an existing IRA' ). Then, simply select the type of IRA you have to get started. It'd be best to have your new Money Market account opened prior to completing the request. You can easily do that within Online Banking or our Mobile App using the 'Add an Account' feature, if you haven't already. Should you need assistance, please call 703-788-4800 or securely chat with a representative within Online Banking.

For CDs it is noted that fees may reduce the earnings on the account. We are interested in setting up a "ladder" of CDs, but need to know about these fees.

Asked by: Mark1
There are no fees to open the account; only an early withdrawal penalty assessed against any earned dividends. Here's the official language from our account disclosures (https://www.applefcu.org/Resources/FormDetails?formid=35): Early withdrawal penalties: If the certificate is redeemed prior to the maturity date the following penalty will apply: - If the term is 6 months or less - the lesser of dividends earned since issuance or renewal or 90 days dividends. - If the term is 6 months to 60 months - the lesser of dividends earned since issuance or renewal or 180 days dividends. - If the term is greater than 60 months - the lesser of dividends earned since issuance or renewal or 1,095 days dividends. Withdrawals needed to comply with IRS RMD requirements are permitted without penalty. There is no penalty for withdrawals as a result of the death of any owner. If the certificate is redeemed within 10 days of renewal, no penalty will apply. Withdrawal of dividends prior to maturity: If dividends are withdrawn during the term of the certificate, the Annual Percentage Yield and earnings will be reduced. Should you have any questions or need assistance with setting up your CD ladder, contact 703-788-4800 (800-666-7996 toll-free).
