Opening a Share Savings Account at The District Credit Union establishes your ownership stake and begins your lifelong membership with our credit union. As a part-owner, you gain access to all the advantages and products that The District has to offer, including higher savings rates and better financial security. Your first savings account can be opened for a low minimum deposit of $25 and a one-time $10 membership fee.
Your Share Savings Account will serve as your primary account, but you can open other savings accounts to make it easier to save for different goals. Each additional savings account you open can be named whatever you like, be it “College Savings” or “Buying a Car,” to keep your finances in order. These accounts will earn at the same rate as your Share Savings Account, and money can be easily transferred between accounts, whether online or at one of our branches.

Letting your children start saving at a young age is a great way to foster financial responsibility and independence. Kids between the ages of 0 and 12 can open a SMARTY Savings Account for an initial deposit of only $5. As a savings incentive, each time a deposit is made, your child can choose from a wide selection of SMARTY Kids Club prizes.
Teen Savings Accounts
For teens, saving is especially important. Our Teen Savings Account is open to all teens between the ages of 13 – 19. An initial $5 deposit is all that is needed to start this account. Parents can transfer allowance online, and teens can start managing their own money with your parental guidance.
Report Card Rewards Program
Students grades K-12 can also turn in their report cards each grading period to earn money for good grades. Our Report Card Rewards program pays $2 for each A (or the top grade available) and $1 for each B (or second highest grade available). Students can earn up to $15 per grading term. Rewards are only offered for the most recently completed grading period.
