Share Savings Account

When you join DC Credit Union our Share Savings account comes with your membership. You only need to keep a $5 minimum balance in order to avoid any fees, and you can earn dividends on your balance.

Holiday & Vacation Club Account

This savings account is great for planning ahead for that fun family vacation or for holiday shopping. We help you automatically set aside money every month, and you earn dividends on your savings throughout the year. For Holiday Accounts, we transfer your saved money to your checking account in early November, making it available to you for the holiday season.

IRAs and Share Certificates

Individual Retirement Accounts are a great way to save money for retirement. With a traditional IRA, your contributions are often tax-deductible and you accumulate earnings tax-deferred. Your contributions to a Roth IRA are never tax-deductible, but your money can be withdrawn tax-free.

We offer both Traditional and Roth IRAs, IRA Share Certificates, and Regular Share Certificates. All are insured to $250,000 by NCUA, and each offers different benefits based on your situation and your goals.

Traditional & Roth IRA Share Accounts

$100 minimum deposit

No administrative or maintenance service charges

 

Traditional & Roth IRA Share Certificates

$2,000 minimum balance

Available for terms of 24 months

 

Regular Share Certificates

Minimum opening deposit: $1000 for 12- to 24-month terms, $500 for 36- to 48-months terms

$500 minimum balance

Money Market Accounts

Earn higher dividends and gain flexibility. A Money Market account from DC Credit Union combines easy access to your funds with the added bonus of earning higher dividends. You can choose between two tiers—a $2500 minimum balance or $10,000 minimum balance—to optimize how your money works for you.

The Share Savings is your investment in our cooperative. The $5 initial deposit becomes your “share” in the credit union, and gives you the right to vote and/or run for our board of directors, as well as take advantage of all DC Credit Union has to offer.

No. You just need an initial deposit of $5. That’s it.

Yes, it is your money to withdraw as you’d like. But we hope you use these accounts to save for that special vacation or to fund a stress-free holiday, and have structured the accounts to encourage as few withdrawals as possible. If you’re saving for a different reason, talk to us and we’ll help you find an account that is most suited for that.
