Are you prepared for retirement? Are you looking for an account to provide you with additional retirement funds? Look no further than an IRA! We offer Traditional IRA’s and Roth IRA’s.

If your desire is to be financially prepared for the holiday season, then a Christmas Club account at Jackson Area FCU is the account for you. Save money for buying gifts, groceries or end of the year spending with a Christmas Club.

We can set up an automatic transfer from your primary account to go in your Christmas Club. You may also choose to make deposits on your own throughout the year. Keep in mind when you withdraw funds from a Christmas club for any reason during the year, there is an early withdrawal fee of $5.00.

Beginning in November of each year, the funds in your Christmas club are transferred into your savings so you have access to your money for spending!

Need a separate account to save funds for a Very Important Purpose or just for a rainy day? Start by opening a VIP account! With a VIP account you don’t have ATM access taking away the temptation of spending your money. You can also set up automatic deposits or deposit money on your own!

Certificates of Deposit or CD’s, are time deposits and for that reason a higher dividend is earned on CD’s. When you open a CD, your intent should be to invest your money for the CD term you have chosen.

CD terms are available as little as 6 months and as long as 36 months. We require a minimum opening deposit of $1,000. Should something come up and you need to withdraw money from your CD, an early withdrawal penalty will be imposed. See our fee schedule, for early CD withdrawal penalties.
