When you join Gratiot Community Credit Union, you do so by opening a regular share account with a minimum of $5.00. This amount must remain in your account to be eligible for other services such as loans, Visa cards and more.
The Credit Union offers a variety of savings to suit your needs. All savings accounts earn dividends which are paid back into the account they are earned on.
This is your primary savings account at the Credit Union. You may be entitled to have other services, now that you have this account. Your regular shares may also be used for overdraft transfers to your checking and can be used as security on a loan. Share accounts (including minor accounts, sub share accounts, and regular share accounts) are now paying 0.15%.
Your vacation club is a separate savings account from regular shares. A deposit of just $5.00 is required to open the account. It can be used for any purpose and may be deposited into the account until May 31st. Dividends are paid June 1st of each year. Check out our rates page to see what the Vacation clubs are paying.
This is an ideal way to save for your holiday expenses. A deposit of just $5.00 is required to open the account. You are able to make deposits throughout the year for any amount at any time. This account is rolled over on November 1st of each year by a transfer to your regular share account. Dividends are paid to the Christmas club account before the transfer is made. Check out our rates page to see what the Christmas clubs are paying.
By investing in a Credit Union certificate of deposit, you earn a higher dividend than the regular share account. You must deposit a minimum of $1000.00 to open a certificate. Dividends are paid back into the certificate or into your regular share account.
Certificates may not be added onto during their term and withdrawals made from the original amount of the purchase is subject to a penalty. You can direct your certificate dividends to be paid back into the certificate, into your regular share account, or we can mail a check.
