Regular Savings

A $5.00 minimum deposit into a regular savings account is a member’s share in the credit union. This represents your ownership in Great River Federal and opens the door to a full array of products and services. Dividends are compounded daily and credited monthly on an average daily balance of $10 and above.

 

 

Special Savings

Save for a vacation, education, or special event with a special savings account and watch it grow! There are no minimum balance requirements. A special savings account earns the same dividend rate as a regular savings account. Dividends compound daily and credit to the account monthly for accounts with balances of $10.00 and above.
