CGECU has three types of savings account to meet your needs. The Credit Union only has "DEPOSITORY" accounts, thus by regulation the withdrawals of such accounts are limited. The regulation on such accounts only allows six (6) withdrawals per month, the credit union BOD only allows three (3) with no fees per month.
This is a basic account required by all members. A minimum $25 balance is required to maintain your membership. Dividends are awarded quarterly by the Board of Directors on Share Savings accounts with balances of $300 or greater.
Our special Christmas Club accounts are offered annually to help members save up for the holidays starting on October 1st and paying out on November 1st each year. Maximum you can invest is $5,000.00 per 12 month period, you must deposit minimum of $25.00 to open and $25.00 per month. Open period to start an account is from first business day of November to last business day of December. 2018 Christmas Clubs are now closed for new accounts.
New for 2018! Must be a member of the credit union to open such account.
Open an account for $5.00, for every $20.00 increase in deposit you get one (1) entry to prize drawings, up to maximum of five (5) entries per month ($100.00 deposit increase per month). This is a club type account, thus you can not withdraw funds during the first twelve (12) months without a penality. (First withdrawal is a $10.00 penality, Second is a $20.00 penality, Third is no penality, but account is closed and you are not allowed to reopen for ninety (90) days).
