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 (for a brochure on how your funds are insured please go here), 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.
