Save Time & Money By Keeping Your Account Active

It is important not allow your credit union account to go dormant.

Keeping you account active is as simple as making a single deposit or withdrawal of any amount at least once every 11 months. That is all there is too it! By following this very simple practice you avoid your account going dormant and incurring quarterly dormancy fees.

In addition, if an account is dormant for 3 years we are required, by state law to remit the funds in that account to the state as abandoned property. So if you have a savings account with E&G, or any other institution, following this one simple rule and it will save you both time and money.

What would my rate be on my savings?

We  offer our members the best rates possible on their savings. The rate a member receives is determined account type you use:

  1. A Regular Share Account is a basic savings account allowing easy unrestricted access to your money.
  2. A Money Market Account offers higher dividends than does a share account. You still maintain easy access to your money but are limited to 6 transactions per month and each transaction (withdrawal or deposit) must be for at least $200.
  3. A Share Certificate is like a CD as it has a specific term of maturity from 6 to 36 months. These certificates offer a still higher dividend rate. These can be Regular Share Certificates or IRA Certificates, if they are held inside an IRA.
