You can! You can set up the transfer online, via fax, or in person at one of our branches.
Government regulations allow only 6 electronic transfers, withdrawals, and checks from savings accounts per month.
If you go over 6, your signature will be required.
In addition to automatic transfers and making deposits via our mobile app, you can also make deposits at our cooperating ATMs.
Make your deposit on business days before 3pm, and you’ll have immediate access to the first $500 of the amount you deposited.
The minimum balance for our Youth Savings Account is just $5.
Unlike a commercial bank that offers dividends on savings as well, credit unions are nonprofits that are owned by their members.
That means that we can offer higher dividends to our members, as well as lower interest rates on loans and credit cards. That means we don’t charge as much for borrowing with us (interest), and we can pay you more for trusting us with your money (dividends,) because we don’t have to share profits with shareholders, just members.
*APY = Annual Percentage Yield.
