Keep the money you are saving to spend separate from the money you are saving to keep. Once your prime daily savings account is established, you have the option of opening a sub savings account. This is perfect to budget and plan for family vacations, college tuition, vehicle purchases, annual insurance premiums and much more. This account has no monthly fee and dividends are calculated daily and paid monthly. The minimum balance to earn dividends is $1.00.
The credit union also features an Ol’ Faithful Sub Savings account. This sub account transfers from your checking account making saving money automatic. You tell us how much and how often you want to save. There’s no minimum opening deposit requirement, so it doesn’t matter how much (or little) you would like to save. If something comes up, your money is always available for you to access.
The Christmas Season is a wonderful time of year for giving and spending a little more to enjoy life.
