Exclusive to Five County CU, the SHIP Account is a great tool to start a serious savings plan with a high rate of return. A substantial penalty applies for any withdrawal without the required 90-day written notice.

Minimum balance to open is $1,000. No penalty for withdrawals from your Golden Rate Fund (minimum withdrawal amount: $250).

GOLDEN RATE FUND PLUS (money market account):

Minimum balance to open is $5,000. The Golden Rate Fund Plus account offers the benefits of the Golden Rate Fund, PLUS the convenience of checks. Write up to three checks per month with a minimum check withdrawal of $500. Penalties apply for writing checks under the minimum withdrawal amount and for exceeding three checks per month. No penalty is assessed if the balance falls below $5,000, however the account will not earn dividends if the balance falls below $5,000 during the month.

The Ship Account, Golden Rate Fund and Golden Rate Fund Plus, are all variable rate accounts. Deposits can be made at any time. See about our payroll deduction and direct deposit options.
