Savings & Investments

Opening a Regular Share Savings account with a minimum deposit of $5.00 establishes your membership in Jefferson Credit Union and serves as a gateway to an array of modern banking services. Regular Share Savings accounts pay dividends at a rate determined by the Board of Directors. Dividends are declared and paid quarterly. Electronic or automatic withdrawals and transfers are limited to three per month. Your Regular Share Savings account is not the best savings plan if you require more than three withdrawals during a month. Talk to a Financial Services Officer about savings accounts and the plan that is best for you.
