Savings Accounts

Regular Savings


Personal Savings Accounts are important whether you’re saving for something or simply building financial security. InTouch Credit Union offers a variety of savings programs designed to make the most of your money.

Joining InTouch Credit Union starts with a Regular Savings Account, which establishes your membership. A minimum balance of $5 must be deposited and maintained in the Regular Savings Account as your share in the Credit Union.

ITCU members have access to over 65,000 surcharge-free Non-ITCU ATMs across the country. Please note that while ATM owner surcharges can be avoided using surcharge-free ATMs, each ITCU account type has a limit on the number of monthly withdrawals that can be performed without an ITCU fee, at any ATM not owned by ITCU. Regular Savings account holders receive up to two Non-ITCU ATM withdrawals per month without a fee from ITCU.1

Money Fund

All the benefits of a high-yield savings with the convenience of check writing and debit card features are what you get when you open an InTouch Credit Union Money Fund Account.

The Money Fund is a liquid account that earns a higher dividend than a regular savings account. Reaching your financial goals is made easy with this tiered account. Each tier gives you higher earning potential based on the balance you maintain.

Health Savings (HSA)


High-deductible health care plans are frequently offered both by employers and third-party insurers as a way to keep monthly premium costs down. This may allow you to significantly increase your take-home pay, but can also put you at risk should you ever have an emergency in which you need to be able to meet that high insurance deductible.

A Health Savings Account (HSA) allows people utilizing a high-deductible health plan to save a little bit at a time in order to meet their deductible, should a need arise.

To open and make contributions to a Health Savings Account (HSA), you need a minimum opening balance of $100, and must be enrolled in a high-deductible health plan. Speak with your employer or seek counsel from your insurance representative for more information regarding the legal definition of a high-deductible plan.

Contributions to an HSA may be tax-deductible and may earn tax-exempt dividends. Please note that the maximum annual HSA contribution is established by the Internal Revenue Service. Be sure to consult a tax professional to learn more about the various Internal Revenue Service regulations which oversee your Health Savings Account (HSA).

At maturity, certificates automatically renew for the same term, at the current rate, unless you instruct otherwise during the renewal period. InTouch Credit Union credits and compounds dividends earned on Certificates monthly. The amount of dividends earned will be shown on your statement. Dividends may be deposited directly into a specified account or rolled into the certificate.
