SAVINGS PROGRAMSSavings Programs

The Credit Union philosophy depends on the pooling of assets by the members to provide funds for loans for individuals within the group. Members are encouraged to make regular deposits and to keep their accounts active.

CLUB ACCOUNTS

To aid you in meeting annual expenses, we offer two types of Club Accounts: Christmas Club Accounts and All Purpose Club Accounts.

Dividends are calculated using the Average Daily Balance Method and paid on the last day of the month. The rate offered on our share account also applies to the following club accounts:

Christmas Clubs
  • Christmas Clubs begin in late fall of each year, although you may open one up at any time. Completed Christmas Clubs are deposited directly into the corresponding Share Account.
  • Your payroll-deducted Christmas Club will automatically be renewed for the same amount unless you notify the Credit Union of a change.

All Purpose Clubs
Another Club Account is available. We call it the All-Purpose Club Account. It works like a Christmas Club except that you have access to your funds when you need them. This is an account designed especially for those of you who want to "put away" extra money apart from your regular shares for some future use such as: vacation, household budget, taxes, luxury items, or any other reason you may want to save. Withdrawals from these Club Accounts should be less frequent than regular shares because it's for your "Special Purpose".
