Credit Union Accounts – Savings, Checking, Business, and More!
Credit Union Savings Account
With just a minimum balance of $5 to open and no monthly maintenance fees, a DMCU savings account is the simple and effective way to save. And, since you’re choosing a credit union, that $5 gets you a share of ownership in your financial institution. Furthermore, as a non-profit organization, our dividend rates are generally much higher than those at your average financial institution.
It’s important to know that most credit unions call the money it pays you for keeping your money on deposit a dividend. The dividend paid to the member is a portion of the credit union’s earnings and are classified as dividends. This is just one of many benefits you receive for being a member at DMCU.
