Traditional savings—and more
Saving money is sometimes called “paying yourself first.” It means putting future goals ahead of short-term wants, then watching your money grow over time.
No doubt about it: Saving takes discipline, and it all starts with the right plan. At Service Credit Union, we make saving second nature with a range of account options.
Youth Club Program
Learning to save is a lifelong habit, starting with a kid’s first allowance. We make saving fun in our Youth Club Program, which offers dividends with a minimum average daily balance of $50 or more and even cash prizes for regular young savers.
If you’re a veteran or currently serving in the Armed Forces, you may qualify for exclusive savings benefits at Service Credit Union. We honor our members who serve with a choice of savings plans that pay higher dividend rates than regular accounts.
Trust accounts are like savings accounts, but the money you (as the trustee) deposit is managed for the benefit of someone else (the beneficiary). You can use trust accounts to help with your estate planning, or to set money aside for a specific purpose or person. We offer informal and formal trusts.
