Checking Accounts

One of the best ways to maximize your Credit Union membership is by setting up direct deposit to an HUECU checking account. Our Crimson Checking accounts come in three variations (Essentials, Advantage, and Elite), each of which offers a range of valuable features and benefits.

The Benefits of Crimson Checking

Free ATMs Everywhere You Go

With an HUECU Crimson Checking Account, you will have the freedom to use any bank’s ATMs completely free. Depending on which account you choose, you’ll get anywhere from $10 to $50 in ATM surcharges automatically refunded each month.

Amazing Perks & Discounts

Crimson Checking is all about giving back to members who support the Credit Union. That’s why we’ve included exceptional benefits such as Free Checks, discounted rates on Auto Loans, plus special bonuses toward Credit Cards, Mortgages, CDs and more!

Free Checking Made Easy

Our Crimson Checking Accounts were all designed with simple terms and minimal requirements to waive the monthly account fee. Based on your unique financial relationship, we will match you with an account that is easy to understand so that you can access all the valuable features at no cost.

In addition to our Crimson Checking options, we offer a Basic Checking Account and specialized accounts for teens and college students.
