Your savings account is a basic building block of your financial well-being. To support healthy savings habits, we offer two main accounts, which will help you organize your funds for specific goals. The Share Savings account establishes you as a member of VSECU and acts as your primary savings account. You can then open Special Savings accounts that are dedicated to saving for specific purposes (vacation, a new car, etc.). If you’re serious about saving, set up direct deposit so that a portion of your paycheck is automatically deposited to your savings account(s).

You are officially a member when you open a Share Savings account with a minimum $25 deposit. With this account, you earn a premium rate on savings balances up to $1,000, with dividends compounded and credited monthly. If you bank with a different financial institution, compare your current earnings to what you could be earning at VSECU.
