Types of Savings Accounts

To meet the needs of a range of different members, we offer several different types of savings shares, including:

Regular Savings Share (S1)

The backbone of your account with PSECU, your Regular Savings Share (S1) gets you started as a new member. To maintain your membership, PSECU requires a minimum $5 balance is maintained in your Regular Savings Share account.

Vacation Savings Share (S2)

Add a Vacation Savings Share to your membership (S2) to help you save for a special vacation or trip you've been dreaming about! While Vacation Savings Shares are similar to Regular Savings Shares, you cannot access these shares with a Debit Card.

Christmas Savings Share (S3)

Add a Christmas Savings Share to your membership (S3) to help you save for an upcoming holiday, special occasion - or that big gift you've wanted to give! It's easy to make it happen when you save in advance. While Christmas Savings Shares are similar to Regular Savings Shares, you cannot access these shares with a Debit Card.

Money Market Share (S7)

PSECU Money Market Shares allow you to earn higher dividends without limiting accessibility to your funds. These funds are federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) up to a total of $250,000 for all shares. This is the maximum amount allowed by law.

  • Minimum balance to open: $0
  • Minimum balance to earn APY: $500
  • Rate: Declared weekly
  • Dividends*: Day of deposit to day of withdrawal. Dividends are calculated on actual daily balances. If the daily balance falls below $500, no dividends are earned until the daily balance reaches $500. Dividends are compounded daily and paid monthly into Money Market Shares.
  • Withdrawal Restrictions: Minimum withdrawal by member request - $20. Money Market remains open until instructed in writing to close.
  • Fees: None
  • Transaction Limits: A maximum of six withdrawals or transfers per month are permitted from one share to another, to a prefix account or to a third party. No more than three of the six transfers may be made by check, draft, debit card or similar order to a third party. If the transfer limitations are exceeded, your account may be closed.
  • Overdraft Protection Transfer Service: Is available a maximum of six times per month.
  • Additional deposits: Can be made anytime. You can start or stop recurring payments or transfers at any time.

*The payment of dividends is based on the available current and undivided earnings of PSECU. The Annual Percentage Yield (APY) for a one year or less time deposit is based on the assumption that the dividends remain on deposit for a full year. A withdrawal will reduce earnings. Regulations prohibit dividends in excess of available earnings.

What Is a Savings Share?

A savings share is a basic account that establishes you as a member of PSECU. Compared to a conventional bank savings account, a share essentially gives you a small portion of ownership in our credit union. Once you set up a savings share, you are able to access all the great financial products we offer our members, if eligible - including competitive rates on loans and lines of credit, low-fee checking accounts and more.

With a PSECU savings share account, you can put aside and access money the same way you would with a conventional bank savings account. Add or take out funds at any time, while remaining confident that your money is held in a secure, stable place.

The S30 Savings Share is available to members using the PSECU Savings app. The app allows you to choose different ways to save toward a goal you select.

Why Join PSECU?

Setting up a savings share is one of the first steps to becoming a PSECU member. We like to think that we offer a different way of managing money, one that is fairer and more convenient for everyone who works with us. Compared to a conventional bank, a credit union such as PSECU offers:

  • Low fees and high yields. Unlike a conventional bank, at a credit union like PSECU members are the owners. Any earnings go toward funding programs like free checking, for example. See the chart below to check out current interest rates for our various savings products.
  • Affordable loans and lines of credit. Similarly, our lending products make it easy to get the money you need, whether it's for a home, school or any temporary need. In addition to low interest rates on both secured and unsecured loans, we offer a simple, straightforward online application process and easy-to-understand terms. Browse our website to start exploring your options.
  • Great member service and long-term relationships. PSECU takes banking back to the way it used to be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick loan approval Auto loan was quickly approved. Only issue I had was that the car we were intending to purchase was classified as a “specialty vehicle” which required additional inquiries about the value of the vehicle. PSECU provides no list of specialty vehicles so we need3d to call them each time we looked at a vehicle to be sure that it qualified for the loan. Cumbersome process, but the rate is excellent and the service reps were good.
