Savings Accounts

Savings accounts to help you achieve your financial goals and dreams

Opening an Educational Systems Federal Credit Union savings account with $5 establishes your Credit Union membership. Once you're a member, you're always a member even if you graduate, change jobs or move.

You can access the money in your savings account with an ATM card or debit card at 80,000 surcharge-free CULIANCE "CU Here" ATMs, in a branch, or through Digital Banking and the Audio Response Teller (ART). Plus, that savings account can be linked to a checking account to provide overdraft protection. To help you save regularly, you can have part of your Direct Deposit put into your savings account. Dividends are compounded and credited quarterly, and deposits are insured up to at least $250,000.

Once your base savings account is opened, you can open additional accounts to help you save for specific purposes.

Sub-Savings Accounts

Open additional savings accounts and create a nickname for each account in Digital Banking. You can access your money in a branch or through Digital Banking and the Audio Response Teller (ART).

Special Purpose Club Accounts

Start saving for the holidays, a birthday or a big vacation with the Special Purpose Club Account. When you open the account, you can select the maturity date that is once every calendar year on the first of the month.* At maturity, the account balance is automatically transferred to the savings account you designate at the time of account opening. Then start saving again, because your Special Purpose Club Account will remain open. Early withdrawals can be made without a penalty, but the account will be closed. To help you save, there is no ATM access.
