This account is required to open any other type of account and you must keep $5.00 in this account at all times. This is your "share" of the credit union. You can open a Share Savings for any purpose - saving for a new car, a vacation, a nest egg, or any major expense. You can have multiple Share Savings accounts at one time.
Regular Share Savings accounts earn dividends (interest) that are paid quarterly. Our current rates are available here.
Money can be deposited to a Regular Share Savings account in person, via shared branching, via "Magic" Line and CU Online transfers, via Payroll Deduction and ACH, and ATM deposit.

A Share Certificate, also called a Certificate of Deposit or CD, is a safe, low maintenance way to earn a higher dividend on your money. You agree to deposit your money for a specific period of time, from 3 to 60 months, and the Certificate earns dividends based on an established rate. Typically, the longer the term, the higher the rate. During the term, the funds cannot be withdrawn without a penalty. At the end of the term, you have the option of withdrawing the funds, or rolling them over into another Certificate.

It's never too early to start saving for your child's education. One way to do this is with a Coverdell Education Savings Account (CESA). Contributions to these accounts are not tax-deductible, but the tax-free earnings potential is tremendous, and the withdrawals are tax-free also - as long as the distributions are used for education.
Take a look at the earnings potential: if you contribute the maximum for a newborn child every year until the child is 18 and you earn an average investment rate of 6%, the account will grow to about $70,000.
And the money isn't just for college - it can be used for qualified elementary and secondary educational expenses.
