Open a Credit Union Savings Account to Watch Your Money Grow
If an emergency happened today, would you have enough money saved to handle it? Or would you have added financial strain on top of the stress from the emergency? Unfortunately, nearly half of all Americans have less than $1,000 in savings accounts, which doesn’t provide much reassurance in being prepared for the unexpected.
But saving money is easier when you have the right tools, which is why Lanco FCU offers a variety of credit union savings accounts. We’ll help you save money for future expenses, emergencies, retirement, and so much more. With the opportunity to earn dividends and great financial products, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that you won’t have to worry about your finances if an emergent situation arises.

Types of Savings Accounts that Fit Your Lifestyle
No matter your reason for saving money, there is a type of savings account for you. From high-yield savings accounts for your emergency fund to saving money for an upcoming trip, find the credit union savings account to help you meet your savings goals.
Basic Savings Account
Simple, convenient, and flexible—our basic savings account is perfect for keeping your savings organized yet accessible. When you start your Lanco FCU membership, this basic savings is where your $5 membership share lives. Just maintain that $5 minimum opening deposit to prove you fall into our credit union’s ownership category!
Set aside savings for a specific time or event and earn a higher dividend rate. Club savings are perfect for saving for Christmas or an upcoming vacation and can be paired with automatic transfers from your direct deposit checks for easier savings. You can contribute as often as you’d like! Each dollar adds up and can make special events much less stressful.
Money Market Savings
Do you want to earn higher dividends while keeping funds accessible? A high-yield savings account, also known as a money market account, is great for building your savings safety net. It’s best for account holders who maintain a higher balance in their personal savings account, as there is a $1,500 account minimum requirement to avoid fees.
Earn higher dividends with term savings, starting as short as six months. These savings accounts differ from other savings products from our financial institution because you earn dividends at higher rates. Additional deposits cannot be made once the account is opened, and early withdrawals may incur fees. So it’s a set-and-forget saving option!
Pair Kasasa Saver® with your Kasasa Cash® or Kasasa Cash Back® checking account to earn higher dividends and automatically save your rewards. It’s like a regular savings account but on steroids! You can earn 1.00% annual percentage yield (APY)* on balances up to $50,000! It’s one of our financial products’ best savings rates!
Individual Retirement Accounts
Worried about having enough money for retirement or want to help your kids pay for school? Open an individual retirement account (IRA) for savings with special tax benefits. This credit union savings account allows you to save for retirement or education costs. IRA’s high dividends help you reach your specific savings goals faster.
Watch Your Savings Grow!
Should you choose traditional savings accounts or a money market account that has the potential to accrue more dividends (interest)? Do you have a specific savings goal, like Christmas, or do you just want to save money for a rainy day? The beauty of choosing a credit union savings account is that you don’t have to choose just one! Pick and choose the one that works best for you and become a member today!
How Lanco FCU Does Things Differently than Regular Savings Accounts from Banks
You know that saving money is important. Not only can it create peace of mind that you are prepared financially in case of an emergency, but a savings account offers the ability to save small amounts of money over several weeks, months, or years. This convenience makes saving for larger events easier without completely emptying your checking accounts!
But choosing the right in-person or online savings account to house your money is equally important. Banks and credit unions are the traditional places to open an account, but which is better? Because its members own credit unions, the money made by the credit union is returned to its members in the form of higher dividends and fewer fees on savings accounts, among other benefits.
Credit unions like Lanco FCU are federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), so you can rest assured that your money is safe. You can also find branch locations local to you right here in Lancaster County when you choose us. We’ll help you meet your financial goals quickly, so open an account today!
