American Airlines Federal Credit Union Launches New uChecking Account Aimed at Ages 13-25

FORT WORTH, Texas – Earlier this month, American Airlines Federal Credit Union (AA Credit Union) launched a new checking account, uChecking, designed especially to appeal to ages 13-25. This modified version of the Credit Union’s popular Priority Checking account offers as much as $15 in ATM out-of-network fee refunds provided members make a minimum of 15 monthly CheckCard transactions, apply for online statements and provide a valid email address. The account also has no monthly fee or minimum balance and has overdraft options available through Bounce ProtectionPlus.

“This is the perfect solution for our younger, tech-savvy, on-the-go member-owners,” said Nancy Crouch, Vice President of Payments for AA Credit Union. “Our uChecking account not only allows these members to start building a financial history but our stylish new CheckCard provides them the financial freedom to access funds in a variety of convenient, youth-friendly ways.”

Member-owners can access funds fee free at nearly 30,000 ATM locations within the CO-OP Network or visit nearly 5,000 Shared Branch locations. They can also access all their financial information online through CUAcce$$™, our internet branch; call our 24/7 automated voice system, CALL-24; or use our handy AA Credit Union app available for iPhone® and Android. The app also features mobile deposit, enabling a member to deposit a check simply by taking a picture with their smartphone, as well as a number of other convenient features.

“We’re very excited about all of our new products and improved processes launching in the coming months,” said Angie Owens, AA Credit Union’s President and CEO. “Our uChecking account is another example of the outstanding services we provide to help all of our member-owners meet their financial needs.”
