Rewards when you spend

Use your credit card? Get ready to be rewarded. Over $2,500 in your checking account? You guessed it—more rewards. How do we manage all those rewards? It's simple—we're a not-for-profit organization, which means more money goes back to our members.

Common Questions

Yes, we offer overdraft protection for peace of mind to cover transactions in the event there are insufficient funds in your checking account. You may link your checking account to your savings, supplemental savings, or money market. You can also use your home equity line of credit or personal line of credit to cover insufficient funds—and these sources allow unlimited transfers.

We need to make sure you really are who you say you are. To open your account you will need a government issued form of ID, such as your driver's license and a valid email address. We also need to know your Social Security number so we can verify your identification.

To help build credit or re-establish credit, we offer our Visa Platinum® Secured credit card. This card has a $25 annual fee and offers a maximum credit line of $5,000. It is secured by your savings account.

We do not charge monthly account fees. For a complete list of service charges, click here.
