Savings/Certificates


We've Raised Rates On Share Certificates And IRA's!

Grow your savings with these great rates

Rates shown are effective as of January 22, 2019. The Annual Percentage Yield is based on an assumption that dividends will remain in the account until maturity. A withdrawal will reduce earnings. A penalty may be imposed for withdrawals before maturity. Rates subject to change daily. Some accounts have minimum opening deposit requirements.  

 
Many Americans spend more than they save, and nearly one in five people are saving less than 5 percent of their income (according to a 2015 Bankrate survey). What makes saving so important? It allows you peace of mind that you are prepared for any type of expense, including unexpected emergencies, repairs, and opportunities. Setting goals for saving can vary from small emergency funds to saving for large purchases to long-term savings for retirement. 
Saving money doesn't always have to be hard work. Effortlessly increase your funds by depositing money in a savings account from each paycheck or monetary gift you receive. You can also transfer funds to your savings account via Online Banking, Mobile Banking, or Telephone Banking...OR you can set up a direct deposit or automatic transfer of funds directly to your savings account for even more convenience. Set up recurring transfers within Online Banking by selecting Transfers/New and using the drop down field to select the transfer frequency (weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, monthly) or speak with a Member Service Representative for assistance.
Are you saving for something special? You can open a secondary savings account to keep those funds separate from other savings balances. Naming the secondary account (Vacation Fund, Wedding Money, etc) will also be a constant reminder that you are working toward achieving a savings goal. You can open your own secondary savings account within Online Banking in the Services tab/Open Sub Account option. Renaming your account with a pseudo name can be done in Online Banking in the Settings/Account menu.

Why Open A Youth Savings Account?

Every child dreams about their future, and some of those dreams may require money to come true. As a parent, you want your children to achieve their dreams.  Children as young as five may have already formed distinct emotional reactions about spending and saving money. Parents can help by teaching and encouraging kids to develop good financial habits. Start by setting small goals with your child. Saving money can become a regular habit and the sense of accomplishment when achieving a goal can boost your child's self-esteem

Achieving economic prosperity is difficult, and it's especially hard for young people who've never learned how to manage money.

  • Join. For starters, open a credit union savings account for each child in your family. As soon as your children can write, have them fill out deposit and withdrawal slips. Guide teenagers through using a debit card and tracking transactions.
  • Share. Include your children in household money discussions. Show them how you budget income and expenses. As their skills improve, give them challenges—such as finding a better cell phone plan, calculating the total monthly cost of owning a car, or sticking to a budget for back-to-school or holiday spending.
  • Coach. Remind your children to ask for help when they need it. And turn to your credit union when you want help. Our tradition of service and philosophy of self-help make 1st Community Credit Union and all credit unions a natural partner in pursuing financial security.
