The Membership Share Account you open when you join Fibre Federal is a savings account that earns more than comparable accounts at most banks. You may open additional savings accounts to use for various goals, vacations, and other special purposes. You can even name them to help manage your money.
For members age 18 and younger, we offer two Youth Accounts. These accounts earn a higher dividend rate than Personal Savings on balances up to $10,000 to encourage our young members to make savings a regular habit. Balances above $10,000 earn the Personal Savings rate. Only one Youth Savings account is allowed per primary member. Primary member must be 18 or younger. It will automatically convert to Personal Savings the month after the member turns 19.
Money Market Savings
Want to earn a better dividend rate than Personal Savings without locking up your funds in a certificate? Money Market Savings gets the job done. Some types of fund transfers have a monthly limit, and other restrictions apply. (See current rates for more information.)
Our Holiday Club makes it easy to save for the end-of-year holiday season. It's a Personal Savings account with an annual payout. Funds deposited to this account, plus the dividends earned, may be automatically transferred to your savings or checking account on November 1 of each year. You may use Payroll Deduction to automatically set a little aside each payday.
