Savings Accounts From Service Credit UnionBuilding Your Nest Egg, From Youth to Retirement
Traditional savings accounts—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.
A Share Savings account is the first step to joining the Service Credit Union family. Since we’re owned by our community of savers, your initial deposit says you’re one of us. It couldn’t be simpler; just deposit at least $5, and you’re in.
Youth Savings Club
Learning to save is a lifelong habit, starting with a kid’s first allowance. We make saving fun with our Youth Club.
Visit your local branch to open an account or call us toll-free at 800-936-7730 (U.S.) or 00800-4728-2000 (Int’l).
Military Savings Benefits
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.
Holiday Savings Club
The holiday season always seems to come up fast! Smart shoppers plan ahead by setting aside regular contributions to a special higher-dividend savings account. It’s a painless way to make sure you have your gift list covered.
A certificate is a savings account where you set aside money for a period of time, from six months to five years. In return, you earn more dividends than you can with regular savings.
A money market is a great place to put your savings when your balance grows larger than $2,500. Why? Because a money market pays higher dividends than regular savings accounts—and you get checks for the account.
Trusts 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 trusts to help with your estate planning, or to set money aside for a specific purpose or person. We offer informal and formal trusts.
