Prime Share Account
Your regular savings are called “shares” because you own your Credit Union and “shares” denote ownership. Thus each $25 you save in your Credit Union regular share account represents a share of ownership. It is only necessary to have one share to initiate your Membership.
Share Draft Accounts
A Share Draft Account is simply a Credit Union checking account. Share Draft Accounts make no demands on your pocketbook. There are no minimum balance requirements or monthly processing charges. In fact, Share Drafts even earn dividends. Members may request to have a Share Draft Account with or without overdraft protection.
The Credit Union offers an ATM Card to Members who have a Prime Share account. This card is a traditional ATM. Members may use it free of charge at any of the over 28,000 ATMs in the nationwide CO-OP network.
The Credit Union offers a multipurpose ATM/Check Card to Members who have a Share Draft account. This card will replace a traditional ATM card with enhanced features. Members may use it to sign for purchases anywhere they see the VISA logo and have the amount deducted from their Share Draft account, instead of writing a check.
Overdraft Line of Credit
All Members with a share draft (checking) account are eligible to apply for an automatic overdraft line of credit. For example, should you write a check for an amount your account does not have the funds to cover you will automatically receive a loan. All loans are advanced in increments of $100. You will be responsible for repaying your overdraft loan. A deposit to the share draft account will not pay off the loan.
Credit Union Members of thirty (30) days are eligible to apply for a loan. Loans may be repaid by payroll deduction, over the counter or set up to automatically transfer from your share account each month. Since interest is charged on the unpaid balance only, there is no penalty for early payment of your loan.
