We would like to reassure you that the health, safety and service of our members and employees are always our priority. American Heritage Credit Union has implemented business continuity initiatives to ensure that we remain open for business and continue to provide access and stability to our members. This page will provide ongoing updates on how you can access your American Heritage services, protect yourself, and your finances.
How to Manage Your Finances Remotely
Take advantage of our Online Teller and Mobile Teller app — you can easily check balances, make transfers and pay bills through these free tools, without having to leave your home or come to a branch.
Through Online Teller, you can activate your eStatements if you have not already and reduce your exposure to mail flow and related contamination risks. For a limited time, we will provide a $5* bonus to any member who activates eStatement between now and April 30, 2020.
With our Mobile Teller app, you can perform a variety of transactions, including mobile deposit of checks, remote bill payment and transfers. You can also set up eAlerts through the Mobile Teller app.
Any member can load an American Heritage debit or credit card into Apple Pay, Google Pay or Samsung Pay, and simply use our tap and go mobile wallet at accepting retailers. This can avoid having to use your card or keypads in public locations.
You can use our website Live Chat feature during normal business hours as well as Text Chat (Text us at 264328 "AMHFCU" to chat with a Member Advisor).

Branch, ATM, PAT and Lobby Service Accessibility
We are augmenting our delivery channels in order to protect our members and employees. Please see below for a comprehensive list of which locations are accessible and how you can best manage your transactional needs. All teller transactions such as deposits, withdrawals and transfers should take place via Drive-Thru, PAT Machines or ATM Machines. Any urgent lobby services such as account opening, IRA services or business services should be by appointment only. We have included a section below for our account forms library which will allow you to perform many services remotely.
- Effective 3/20, the following branch teller and lobby services are closed (PAT Machine or ATM accessibility is still available): Bristol, Doylestown Hospital, NSA, EPA, Fox Street, Roxborough, Parkside, Spring Garden, Fairless Hills, and Federal Center. Deposits and withdrawals can be made 24/7 from PAT or ATM machines. PAT will have live tellers from 8am to 7pm Monday through Friday, and 9am to 3pm on Saturdays.

We will continually update our members should any of our locations have alternate hours or closures.
Our Contact Center is available from 7am to 8pm Monday through Friday, and 9am to 3pm on Saturdays.
We continually disinfect our branches and offices, including door handles and counter tops, and our employees may use sanitary gloves when handling transactions as a precaution.
The entire public, regardless of membership, can use American Heritage ATMs surcharge-free to withdraw cash. We are regularly cleaning and disinfecting our onsite ATM screens, touchpads and surrounds.
Our members can use our shared branch network for normal transactions, however we encourage you to check with other institutions on their accessibility. You can find shared branching locations here.
Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly with soap or sanitizer before and after any money transactions, including currency exchange or payments, card usage, and ATM transactions
How to Protect Your Data
With a heightened pandemic threat, comes the elevated potential of scams. If anyone contacts you purporting to be from any agency or financial institution and asks for your personal information, please be diligent and do not share any account, social security, password or other personal identification details. Learn more at our Member Security page.
How to Request Account Changes
Members now have the ability to make a variety of changes to their accounts remotely through our Account Request Forms. These new forms provide a quick and easy way to make updates while eliminating the need to visit a branch or send personal information through the mail.
How we are Protecting Employees
We have begun having portions of our employees work from secure remote locations to ensure that we are well-prepared for no interruption in business operations or member service.
We have curtailed business travel for employees and have cancelled employee participation in most offsite events for the time being.
Our facilities have elevated their already-rigorous cleaning and disinfectant procedures, and our education seminars will be held virtually for the near future.
