Here every step of the way.
We’re here to help build your child or grandchild’s future. We understand that it’s not easy to start saving for college and sometimes it’s hard to take that first step. That’s why we’ve created the College Saver Term Share which can be opened for $25.
Here‘s how it works:
• $25 minimum required opening deposit.
• $250 minimum balance to earn dividends.
• Unlimited number of deposits in amounts greater than $50.
• Term Share renews automatically every 12-months until the member reaches 18 years of age.
• Must have a parent/legal guardian joint owner.
Stop by one of our branches to open a membership for your child or grandchild or if they already have a membership, log into membership and use the Open Accounts feature found Accounts on the drop down menu in online banking.
