Prime Savings AccountSince credit union members are also credit union owners, each member has a “share” in InFirst FCU. Your share is established when you join the credit union and maintain a minimum of $5 in a Prime Savings Account. Dividends are computed on the daily balance method. Once you’ve opened a Prime Savings Account, you are eligible to apply for all services. Your savings account also acts as overdraft protection for your checking account.
Remember, once a member, always a member means that as long as you maintain $5 in your Prime Savings Account and are in good standing, you are an InFirst FCU member for life – even if you change jobs, move or retire. Your immediate family members are also eligible to join.

This certificate will automatically renew for the same term at the rate offered at the time of maturity unless the account holder informs the credit union otherwise, or the certificate term is no longer offered. There is a grace period of ten (10) calendar days after maturity to change the term or withdraw the funds from the certificate without being charged an early withdrawal penalty.
Early Withdrawal Penalty
If certificate funds other than dividends are withdrawn prior to maturity, a penalty will be assessed as follows:
Terms of twelve (12) months or less will be penalized ninety (90) days of dividends.
Terms of thirteen (13) months or more will be penalized one hundred and eighty (180) days of dividends
The penalty is calculated as a forfeiture of part of the dividends that have been or would be earned on the account. It applies whether or not the dividends have been earned. In other words, if the account has not yet earned enough dividends or if the dividend has already been paid, the penalty will be deducted from the principal.

Custodial AccountsCustodial accounts are membership accounts opened in the name and social security number of a minor, but controlled by a custodian. Until the age of 18, the minor has no access to the funds and only the custodian may deposit to and withdraw from the account. An adult must sign as the custodian. There are no joint members or payees allowed on a Custodial Account.
This is a great account for a grandparent or parent to open to save money for a child’s college education or other long term savings plan!
A Custodial Account has the same rate as our Prime Savings Account.
