The credit union has many varied types of savings accounts available to our membership. Each account carries a different purpose and may carry a different rate and requirements. It is important that members of the credit union learn to consistently save a portion of their earnings in some type of savings account. When you make an effort to save some of your earnings you will put yourself on the road to financial independence. If you have children, it is a good idea to start a credit union savings account for your children when they are young and add a small amount each payday. You can also teach them to add to this account when they are old enough to earn their own money. So if you have not saved in the past - today is the day to start. You may borrow against several types of savings accounts at a reduced rate of interest. Remember, payroll deduction is a painless way to save.

THREE WAYS TO REORDER SHARE DRAFTS
There are three convenient ways to reorder your share drafts, but if you need to change your Name, Address or Telephone number, you can only use OPTION 1. Several members have used OPTION 2 AND/OR 3 and their drafts were returned to the credit union at a cost of $4.05 per box. When you use OPTION 2 AND/OR 3 the Name, Address and Telephone number will be printed on the Share Drafts as shown on the order form. Members will be charged for the cost of returned share draft boxes.
