SAVINGS AND INVESTMENTS
We realize our members have different savings goals ranging from short-term purchases to long-term nest eggs. That’s why OCTFCU has several savings options for you to choose from.
You automatically open a share savings account when you become a member. Your minimum opening deposit of $5.00 goes directly into this account and you will earn competitive dividends/interest paid quarterly. You'll find saving is easy with payroll deduction, ACH, deposit by mail, or "In person".
Minimal fees will apply for copies of drafts, stop payments, overdraft transfer fees, return items, etc.
For when just a savings account won’t do, OCTFCU has other rewarding ways for you to invest your money.
Term Share/Certificates – Term Share/certificates are a simple way to put some money aside. How long you have your certificate determines how much interest you’ll make.
IRA – Investing with an Individual Retirement Account, or IRA, is not only a great way to save for your retirement, but you’ll get some great tax advantages as well. We have several IRAs to choose from.*
Share Certificates provide a safe way to save for the future whether you have short or long term needs. Certificates are available for a minimum of $1000.00 with rates on various terms. Terms are from 31 days out to 30 months.
EARLY WITHDRAWAL PENALTY: If the maturity of a share certificate is one year or less, the forfeiture is equal to 90 days dividends. If the maturity of a share certificate is more than one year, the forfeiture is equal to 180 days dividends.
