Choose Your Account Type

We offer both Accumulation Savings IRAs and Share Certificate IRAs.

An Accumulation Savings IRA is a variable rate account that allows for frequent, regular deposits. It is excellent for payroll deductions. Rates can fluctuate on a monthly basis and the minimum deposit is $10.00.

An IRA Share Certificate is a fixed rate account that is designed for a one-time deposit. The minimum deposit for an IRA Share Certificate is $250. Rates for this account are “locked in” for the length of the maturity period and the dividends are compounded on a quarterly basis. Learn more about Share Certificates.

Already have an ESA?

You can rollover or transfer an existing ESA or lump sum to a new ESA at your credit union without withdrawing funds from the ESA.
