Are your savings earning for you? You have options.
With a variety of features and benefits, Countryside FCU has the saving account that offers the best value and the right fit for you.
When you join the Credit Union, a regular Share / Savings account is opened for you. We call your savings "shares" as they represent shares of ownership. To keep the account open and maintain voting privileges, a $5 minimum balance must be maintained. Members may open multiple share / savings accounts.
We offer a range of certificates that allow you to invest for short or long terms. The minimum certificate is $500. Dividends earned are added to the certificate, or as an option, deposited to savings or checking, or mailed to you monthly. Available on one year or longer certificates is our 'Step Up Rate' Program, which allows you to elect a higher available rate one time during the term of the certificate. Certificates are automatically renewed for same term at current rate, unless you advise otherwise. renewal reminder notices are mailed ten days prior to maturity. Penalties for early withdrawal apply.
For that special occasion, holiday or get-a-way, we offer three club accounts: 'U' Name It Club, Holiday Club and Vacation Club. Dividends are earned on the average daily balance and posted monthly. There's no minimum balance required, and these accounts pay a higher rate of dividend than a regular Share / Savings Account. Your funds are available on demand up to four times per year, and are accessible through Touch Tone Teller and Internet Teller.
