Green Country – as with other Credit Unions – differs from banks in that every account holder is a MEMBER. And we are MEMBER-OWNED. Meaning, you have a say in how the credit union is run, and you can vote on various issues and the Board of Directors. It doesn’t matter if you have more or less money than anybody else in your account – every member is treated equally.
Also, each member is required to have a Primary Share Savings Account to be eligible for any other Green Country FCU product or service. Your Primary Share Savings account can be opened with as little as $5 and must retain at least $5 in it at all times to remain open.
Additionally, you will have a Share Savings account for each Draft account you open. This makes it easy to set up direct deposit and automatic transfers to make saving effortless.
(If you’re used to bank terminology – a share savings account is similar to a savings account – ours pay Dividends (like banks pay interest).
Share Draft accounts are the same as a checking account – completely liquid accounts for payments and everyday spending.
