Savings Accounts

SHARE ACCOUNT

The term ‘Share Account’ is used by credit unions to describe their savings accounts. To join the credit union, a minimum deposit of $5.00 is required and a one-time membership fee of $1.00.

In the St. John United Federal Credit Union, members are required to maintain a minimum of one share in their savings account ($5.00) in order to remain as a voting member of the credit union. There is no limit to the maximum amount of money or shares a member may save in their share account.

Dividends (interest) are paid June 30 and December 31 and are based on the daily average balance in the account during the 6-month period. Statements are mailed semi-annually for the periods ending June 30 and December 31.
