*Unlike banks, credit unions are financial cooperatives, and each member is also a member-owner of the credit union. Members are required to have a primary savings account of $25 minimum on deposit in this account. This primary savings or “Share” account represents the member's 'share' in the credit union. Deposit amounts that exceed $25 can be transferred or withdrawn, but to maintain membership in good standing, each member must maintain a minimum deposit of $25 in their primary savings account.
