Like most credit unions, we used to call our savings accounts, share accounts. That's because when you open a savings account at SFCU, you're really buying a share. That means you own a piece of the institution and have a stake in its future. Your deposit even comes with voting rights as our board of directors is chosen from among the membership.
There's another difference we think you'll like too. SFCU savings account dividends are usually higher than the interest you'd earn at a bank. Our board of directors determines the rate, and we calculate your monthly dividend based on your average daily balance.
