Savings Programs

Savings Accounts

Your $5 minimum deposit opens your savings account and makes you a member of Austin City Employees Credit Union. We offer separate sub savings accounts for you to reach your savings goals. The accounts are for you to use for your future endeavors such as vacation, Christmas or for whatever you may be saving for.

Certificates of Deposit

Here is a safe way to put your money to work with optimum return on your investment. Invest in our Certificates of Deposit. You will always get guaranteed dividends rates with terms ranging from 3 to 24 months, with a low $500 minimum deposit requirement. Each certificate is a fixed term investment that is an insured way to invest for the future.

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)

IRAs are designed to meet members’ long-term retirement savings needs. Your credit union has several types of individual retirement accounts with options that let you reduce your tax liability and defer taxes on your earnings as you build a financially secure retirement. IRA accounts are insured separately from your other accounts up to $250,000 with the National Credit Union Insurance Fund.
