Have you ever wanted to skip the step of driving to two or more different financial institutions, and just perform deposits from the comfort of your computer? Account to Account Transfer (A2A Transfer) allows members - registered to CU Online - to perform transactions between HTFFFCU to/from an account with an external financial institution. Move money anywhere you need, anytime you want! It's quick, safe and easy! Think of HTFFFCU as your Internet Banking hub.

In order to use A2A Transfer, you need to know the other institution's ABA/Routing number as well as your account number at that institution. As a result, you normally wouldn't use A2A Transfer to pay bills. Instead, use it to move money to and from your accounts at other institutions, such as your brokerage account, another bank account or a minor's account.

 Account to Account transfers allow an account holder to perform a transfer to/from an account with another financial institution.

This provides the convenience of transferring money from another financial institution to make deposits to your account. The deposit can then be used to make loan payments.

You must be a registered CU Online user and an owner of both the external and Credit Union accounts.

Log on to CU Online and hover over the transfer tab then select Account to Account transfers from the drop down menu. Click on Set Up New Account and then follow the prompts.

There will be a small random deposit and withdrawal to your external account. Once you have received an email stating that the transactions were created, you may then view the transactions on your external account and log on to CU online to complete the verification by entering the amounts.

After initial set up and verification process, a normal transaction will take about 3 business days.

Transfers must be at least $50 and cannot exceed $2,000 per day or $5,000 per month.
