Share Savings Account

Open a Share Savings Account to become a TVTFCU member. A minimum balance of $25.00 is required. This minimum amount represents your share of ownership in the credit union. It is not a fee; it goes directly into your newly established Share Savings Account. Once you become a member of the credit union, you can remain a member for life, even if you change jobs, relocate or retire.

Dividends are paid on a tiered level, computed on your average daily balance and paid quarterly. Minimum deposit is $2,000.00 - the higher the balance, the more you earn. You may make unlimited deposits and withdrawals. The withdrawals are set at a minimum of $250.00. Online transfers out of the account are limited to six per month.

Summer Pay Club

To help our members meet their expenses during the summer, the credit union offers an interest earning solution called the Summer Pay Club! You can have a certain amount deducted from your pay each payday during the school year. The money is deposited into your Summer Pay Club and earns interest quarterly. At the end of the school year, we will automatically transfer, bi-weekly, the designated disbursement amount of the Summer Pay Club into your credit union Share Draft Checking (suffix X). You will have access to your money with your FREE ATM/DEBIT card and/or FREE basic checks that we offer. Your funds will be available at 8:00 a.m. on the scheduled disbursement dates. This allows you to easily plan your summer finances according to what best fits your bi-weekly needs.
 

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: When figuring out your payroll deduction, multiply by 21, as this is the average number of payroll deductions that the credit union receives throughout the school year. Then divide by 5 to get your Summer Pay Club disbursement amount.
EXAMPLE: Save $275.00 per pay during the school year, multiply by 21 = $5,775.00, then divide $5,775.00 by 5 = $1,155.00 for each summer pay club disbursement, plus any interest that has been posted to the account.

Holiday Club Account

Our Holiday Club is an easy, convenient way for you to save for your upcoming holiday expenses. You can make deposits through payroll deduction, in person, or mail to reach your goal. The club matures the first week of November when we will transfer the full amount of your club to your savings account. The club will pay dividends based on available earnings, computed daily and paid quarterly.

Health Savings Account (HSA)

A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax favored savings arrangement for individuals covered by a High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP). With HDHP coverage, an individual must pay for a certain amount of medical expenses before the HDHP begins to pay any medical expense. In exchange for paying a certain amount upfront, individuals enjoy less expensive insurance premiums. Individuals can use the money they save in an HSA to pay for medical expenses incurred by themselves, their spouses, or their dependents. Changing from your existing HSA account to ours is simple. Contact us for more information.
