Savings

We have a wide range of savings accounts that can help you save for what matters most to you.

 

Regular Savings

Regular Savings Accounts at DFDFCU are called "Share/Savings Accounts". The share/savings account is referred to as your “share” account because every member has one ownership “share” in the Credit Union. Your ownership "share" of Denver Fire Department Federal Credit Union begins when you open a share/savings account and deposit a minimum of $25.00.

Member accounts are insured to at least $250,000 by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.

Dividend earnings on share/savings accounts are determined using the average daily balance method which applies a periodic rate to the average daily balance in the account compounding and crediting the account on a monthly basis. Members should review the Truth in Savings disclosures for all dividend payment agreements

Money Market Accounts

Looking to get a higher return on a secure investment? Money Markets offer a higher return than a regular savings account, but allow you more access to your funds than other investment alternatives. A Money Market Account is an ideal investment option for your portfolio, protecting against the ups and downs of the stock market and mutual funds.

  • A minimum deposit of $5,000 is required to earn the current Money Market APY (Annual Percentage Yield).

  • Your deposits are federally insured up to $250,000 by the NCUA.
