SHARE SAVINGS
Open a Share Savings Account with a deposit of $25.00 or more, this is your primary membership account. No membership fee is required. A Share Savings Account pays dividends quarterly. The dividend rate is determined by the Board of Directors and is subject to change at anytime.

CERTIFICATES
The credit union has several options for you to choose from. All certificates have a minimum deposit requirement of $500. The terms of deposit range from a minimum of 90 days to a maximum of 5 years. Certificates are term certificates with a fixed maturity. Interest on Certificates accrue daily and, at maturity and/or quarterly, are credited to the balance of the certificate. The Certificates will automatically renew at maturity. A notice of maturity will be mailed to the member at least 10 days prior to the maturity date of the certificate.
The credit union may impose a penalty if the certificate is redeemed prior to the maturity date.

*Note: Any certificates opened before April 1, 2017, will just receive the 90 Day Interest EWP. All certificates opened after April 1, 2017, will receive the EWP listed above.

MONEY MARKET SHARES

A Money Market Share Account provides a unique savings benefit for members that want the ability to deposit and withdraw at any time; keeping their funds more accessible than a Certificate, while still yielding a higher dividend rate than a Regular Share Account.
