Savings Accounts

Regular savings accounts at the credit union are called “share accounts” because they represent a share of credit union ownership. When you save with your credit union, you become an owner, and you’re investing in the local community.

  • Minimum balance of $25 in your savings account is required to maintain membership.
  • Dividends are computed daily and credited monthly. The minimum required balance to earn dividends in a savings account is $50.00.
  • Access to your funds online, by mail, phone, ATM or in person.
  • You can open many unique regular savings accounts. Speak with a BCS Community Credit Union representative for details or do it yourself in It’sMe247 Online Banking.
  • Your savings are federally insured to at least $250,000 per member by the National Credit Union Administration, a U.S. Government agency.

Certificates of Deposit

Certificate Accounts are the best way to earn the highest yields on your savings. And with the flexibility of several CD terms to choose from, you can tailor your accounts to meet your financial requirements.

You can open a certificate account with as little as $500 and choose terms ranging from 6 to 60 months. Funds deposited into Term Certificates are “locked in” for the term that you select and the amount you choose to deposit, unless you choose the Bump-up feature.

Take advantage of rising rates with the CD Bump-up Feature

With all Certificates of Deposit with a term of 36 months or more, the Bump-up feature allows you bump-up your CD rate once during it’s term, whenever you choose.  It’s like rate insurance for your CD.

Features:

  • Dividends are computed using the average daily balance method and paid quarterly.
  • Choose terms to fit your needs.
  • Renewed automatically at the current rate.
  • Easy automatic transfer option of dividends to your Checking or Membership Savings account.
  • Bump-up your CD rate as rates rise, once with your 36- 48- and 60-month Certificates.

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)

Let BCS help you gain an edge on retirement or education expenses with a Credit Union IRA Account. You can open any type of tax-advantaged IRA account without set-up fees or annual maintenance costs.

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) let you increase your pension and Social Security income with the possibility of enjoying a break on your taxes. You can reduce your current tax bill by deferring income tax on the dividends the account earns until you begin withdrawals, usually after you retire when your tax rate may be lower. All or part of the money you contribute may be tax-deductible, depending on your overall income and pension plan participation status.
