Account Services

HTFFFCU offers an array of services to compliment your checking and savings accounts.

Auto Pay

Auto Pay is a twofold service that allows you to both designate specific amounts of money from your direct deposit to go to different accounts in the credit union (including loan payments) and to pull money from other financial institutions to cover your loan payments with HTFFFCU.

Check Services

  • Money Orders - Money orders can be purchased at any of our three locations. Money orders can be purchased for a maximum amount of $500 each and there is a $2.00 fee per money order.

  • Savings Bonds - You can redeem US savings bonds at any of the three locations of the credit union. All savings bonds can be redeemed at the teller line of any branch location.

Direct Deposit

  • Direct deposit automatically deposits your paycheck into your credit union account(s) - checking or savings. Direct deposit allows you to earn dividends on funds as soon as possible. If you are not at work, your paycheck still arrives at the credit union on payday.

  • Please contact us to verify your account number or to confirm the credit union routing number and get started with direct deposit today!

Overdraft Services

Overdraft Services help you pay for your expenses even if you don’t have sufficient funds in your checking account to cover them. We offer three types of overdraft services: Overdraft Protection, Overdraft Tolerance, and Debt Card Overdraft.

Personal Automated Telephone Teller (PATT)

Wherever you find a touch-tone telephone you’ll find your credit union. With P.A.T.T. you can use the phone in your home, office or anywhere in the continental United States to quickly and conveniently access your HTFFFCU account.

Safe Deposit Boxes

Besides your family members and pets, what would you grab if you knew a natural disaster would hit your home in five minutes? Those items--anything that would be extremely difficult or impossible to replace--are candidates for a safe deposit box.
