Savings Accounts

Every PSECU membership starts with a dividend-earning savings account. Your opportunities to save grow from there.

Choose Which Savings Options Work for You

A Regular savings share is the cornerstone of PSECU membership. And only $5 is required to establish and maintain it (additional savings shares have no minimum balance!)

Saving money puts you in control of your financial future. You’re putting money away now so you’ll have it when you need it for that down payment on a house, a college education for you or a special child in your life, retirement, or whatever is important to you and your family. Can money buy happiness? Conventional wisdom says no. But saving it for future goals can give you something else you can’t buy - peace of mind.

That peace of mind can be found in the form of gimmes, like a special rate for youth and free resources to help you make the most of your money. It’s also provided by one big difference that sets us apart from banks. While banks make profits for their corporate shareholders, credit unions like PSECU are not for profit and serve their members. You can feel good about saving with us because we’ve been making decisions that benefit our members for over 85 years.

1Dividends (which you may call interest): Based on day of deposit to day of withdrawal. Dividends are calculated on actual daily balances. If your daily account balance falls below $500, you won’t earn dividends until your daily balance again reaches $500. Dividend rates are declared monthly, compounded daily, and paid monthly into Money Market Shares. Payment of dividends is based on the available current and undivided earnings of PSECU. The Annual Percentage Yield (APY) for a deposit of one year or less is based on the assumption that both the deposit and dividends remain on deposit for a full year. A withdrawal will reduce earnings. Regulations prohibit dividends in excess of PSECU’s available earnings.

Important: When using debit (point-of-sale) transactions with PSECU Visa debit card, you must have available funds in your checking account or your transaction will be declined. Overdraft Protection Transfer Service does not apply to debit transactions. Loan options are treated as cash advances and are subject to those rates and accrue interest immediately. If you did not choose an option when you set up your account, PSECU will automatically set up overdraft protection transfers from your Regular Shares.
