Share Accounts—We have a variety of shares accounts. Share/Savings, Christmas Club, and Share Certificates.
The Regular Share/Savings Account requires a minimum deposit of $5.25 to open the account. The $5.00 balance needs to be maintained within this account throughout the duration of your membership. The $0.25 is a joining fee that goes to the Credit Union. Dividends on share accounts are paid on the average daily balance method on a quarterly basis on balances over $100.00. (See rates for a list of current dividend rates paid the previous quarter.) Share Accounts with a balance below $100.00 must have activity at least once a year or a $5.00 inactive fee will be charged on a semi-annual basis. (Accounts for minor children not included).
The Christmas Club Account is to be used to help you prepare for the holiday season. Dividends are paid by the average daily balance method on accounts over $100.00. Dividends will be posted and Christmas Club Checks mailed on October 1st or the first business day thereafter.
Share Certificate Accounts require a $500.00 minimum balance. We offer 6, 12 and 24 Month terms on Share Certificate accounts. Dividends are paid by the daily balance method on the principal amount on a monthly basis. Dividends are deposited into the members share account and can be added to the certificate at renewal. There is no grace period on Share Certificate accounts. The amount of penalty for early withdrawal for an account is 90 days dividends, or all accrued dividends since date of issuance if less than 90 days. The Credit Union has the discretion to waive the penalty under special circumstances stated in the Rate and Fee Schedule.
