Smart Savings Plans
Put money in Savings for any extra’s in your life and earn dividends while you are doing it.
A Savings Account, also referred to as a Share Account, is an insured, dividend paying account that is required for all members of Diversified General Federal Credit Union. A Savings Account can be opened with as little as $5.00 and entitles you to all the benefits and privileges of being a credit union member! Your $5.00 is your share in the Credit Union, this makes you a member. (See our rates)
As a member you can take advantage of the great low rates on loans and access to all of the services provided by the credit union including personal loans, auto loans, certificates of deposit, checking accounts, IRA’s and much more! Plus, you receive the added benefit of personalized attention and the friendly service of our professional staff.

Save it for retirement.
Even if you are soon-approaching retirement or are already retired, you may want to consider increasing your annual contributions (if eligible) or rolling over your other retirement plan assets to an IRA to get the more out of saving while you can.
Remember that the “R” in IRA stands for retirement, which is the main purpose for having an IRA. So you will want to set yourself up as well as you possibly can-as soon as you can-to get the most from your savings when you need it the most. Let Diversified General Federal Credit Union help you get started with your own IRA today.
