Money Market Accounts
Our Money Market account provides options to earn a higher interest rate with easy access to funds.

Dividends are accrued on a tiered-scale (based on the total funds in the account) and are paid quarterly.
Christmas Club/Special Savings Accounts
Our Christmas Club account allows our members to make deposits throughout the year to save for Holiday expenses. The funds in the account are either mailed to our members in the form of a check or can be transferred to the regular share account during the first week of November.
Special Savings accounts may be used for a variety of purposes such as saving for a vacation, a special event, etc.
No minimum balance is required to open the Christmas Club or Special Savings account.
TERM CERTIFICATE ACCOUNTS
Our Term Certificates are a fixed-rate deposit account. Funds are locked in for a specific term and generally pay higher interest than the Regular Savings account. For more information regarding rates and terms, speak to a Member Services Representative.
