Making Payments from Another Financial Institution
External Automatic Transfer: Use an external automatic transfer when you want to pay on your American 1 loan from another financial institution.

Bill Pay: Use the Bill Pay option when you want to pay on your American 1 loan using the Bill Pay system of another financial institution. You can set up American 1 as a “biller” in a Bill Pay system you may have with another institution. Be sure to verify with them whether they will post electronically or send a check as you may need to allow extra time for the payment to be sent in the mail. If you have an American 1 checking account, you can also set up an account to account transfer in our Bill Pay to transfer funds from your other financial institution to American 1.
Mail: Check payments can be mailed to American 1 Credit Union, 718 E. Michigan Ave., Jackson, MI 49201. Please be sure to put your loan account number on your check for accurate payment posting.
