Special Savings accounts can be set up for any purpose. No minimum balance is required and interest is earned when the balance in the account is $100 or more. You can open a Special Savings account and rename these accounts as Holiday, Summer Pay or Vacation Club account. Ask any Member Finance Representative for more information on these options.

Some of the Educators Share Certificates have Jump-up or Add-on options. The Jump-up option allows you to request a rate increase when our rates increase once during the term of your Share Certificate. You will receive the higher rate for the remaining term of the certificate.

The Add-on option allows you to add to the value of your Share Certificate by depositing a minimum of $500 to your Share Certificate at any time. The new money you add starts earning dividends the same day you make the deposit.

Check out the Share Certificate rates to see which certificates offer the Jump-up and Add-on options.
