They say nothing in life is easy. But really, this is easy.

Because it can earn you a generous amount of money, opening a Share Certificate account is one of the smartest financial moves you can make. And we give you plenty of options for getting started, ranging from old-school mail to modern technology.

Pay us a visit. Send us a check. Or transfer funds online.

With Share Certificates, you choose how long you want to save, with options ranging from six months to seven years. You also get to choose the easiest way to send us the opening deposit. Here's an easy how-to on all the ways to transfer funds into your account.

1. Stop by one of our branches.
2. Mail a check with “Certificate Promotion” written in the Memo line, along with the certificate term (for example, 13 months) to:

Andrews Federal Credit Union
ATTN: Payment Systems
P.O. Box 3000
Clinton, MD 20735-6001

3. If you don’t live near an Andrews Federal branch, visit a Shared Branch to deposit money to your Andrews Federal Savings or Checking Account or wire money from another financial institution. If wiring money, your financial institution may request the following information:

First and last name on the account
ABA/Routing number: 255074111
Type of account (either Checking or Savings)
Your account number
Our address and phone number: 5711 Allentown Road, Suitland, MD 20746, (800) 487-5500

Move Money From Another Financial Institution

  2. Click the External Account Transfers tab and “Add a New External Account” if you have not previously entered the account and routing number from your external institution.
  3. Click “Transfer Money,” enter the amount you would like to withdraw from your external institution, and click “Submit.”
  4. Once these funds have been received in your account, you can use all, or a portion, of these funds to open the certificate of your choice.
