First Castle FCU offers members several options for savings. Whether you wish to save for your retirement, a dream vacation or your children’s education, our menu of programs provides savers with safe and competitive alternatives.
Upon completing your First Castle FCU membership application and opening your initial Share Savings Account, you will have all the financial advantages that membership offers. The minimum balance to retain membership is only $5.00 and there is no fee to open your account. Combined with the added benefits of payroll deduction and/or direct deposit, saving is virtually effortless.
Your share savings account defines you as a member/owner of the Credit Union. This account can be opened as a single or joint membership. Your savings in this account, as well as all our savings vehicles, are insured to the legal limit by the NCUA, an independent agency of the federal government. There is no maximum or minimum deposit amount.
This year-round savings program is designed to help you save for holiday expenses. In early November, your funds will be disbursed into your share account just in the “Nick” of time for holiday shopping sprees.
