Save for Your Best Life

Saving money gives you peace of mind, gives you options, & the more you save, the easier it becomes to accumulate additional savings.

Typically, we get our paycheck, and we focus on paying bills. While you of course want to pay these on time, what happens? We often neglect our savings. One of the easiest and most effective strategies is to automate your finances. This allows you to save toward your long-term goals or build up an emergency fund without having to think about it daily.

Begin by deciding how much you can save every month. If you aren’t sure, this spending plan worksheet from our partners at GreenPath can help you figure out how much you have and what’s already committed to bills and expenses. Even if you are saving a small amount, it’s worth doing.

Automate deposits & gain access to paychecks up to 3-days sooner with Early Direct Deposit from USSFCU*.

Save with a purpose, such as college expenses, retirement, or for emergencies.

With Money Goals, Multitasking Pays Off

A saving account is a great place to start building your nest egg, but Money Market Accounts are a great option if you want to earn a little more in dividends but still have immediate access to your funds. Plus, the more you deposit, the more you could earn.

If you are looking to earn even higher dividends and have some money to lock away for a time you might want to consider a Share Certificate Account. You can choose from 6-months to 60-months and the longer the term, the more you could earn.

Build a Certificate Ladder

Could You Be Saving More with a Share Certificate Ladder?

When implementing a CD ladder, you simply purchase multiple deposit certificates with varying durations (and usually interest rates). This will result in having several certificates that mature at regular intervals. As long as you don’t need the money, you can continue to roll these over into new terms. You can repeat this process as long as you wish to keep the money in savings and keep the money-generating interest.

Every experience with USSFCU has been extremely good right from the start. Our main account with USSFCU is a HELOC with zero over prime rate, which is almost unheard of.

Provides excellent customer service and this is demonstrated by their great attention to detail. USSFCU provides excellent financial products and professional communication.

I joined in 1975 when I began my 41 year career in the U.S. Senate. It was a family and still is - one to be depended on in times of need and for advice.

The credit union provides relatively good services and the security updates to the system are noticeable.

All of my children and grandchildren have USSFCU accounts now. I really admire USSFCU and its staff completely, they have always looked out for my interests.

Outstanding online and mobile banking services. Professional, Courteous, knowledgeable responsive staff!

I am very satisfied to belong to this institution and whenever I need support it is good to know that I count on you.

This credit union is the best, I love the customer service and you can't beat the interest rates. I'm happy to be a member of this great credit union.

Great staff helping all the time. Just a very well run company always good service.

Always good service, especially when I telephone in. I have another credit union where, every time I call in, I have to wait a considerable amount of time before reaching a representative. When I worked on the Hill, it always was a pleasurable experience coming to the credit union office, whether to make a deposit or apply for a loan.

Customer service via the phone is very helpful and easy to accomplish requests.

Care about their clients and concerned about making sure they have the best rates and packages.

USSFCU has always been accommodating, easy to work with, and staff are always kind. I have every intention of keeping my account with this bank for a long, long time.

The branch manager introduced herself and was extremely helpful. She stated that if there is anything we ever need to please let her know. Very positive experience!
