Kingsville Area Educators Federal Credit Union - KAEFCU KAEFCU

Shares (Savings)

From a single savings account (shares) you automatically become a member of Kingsville Area Educators Federal Credit Union (see Why KAEFCU for a list of benefits). And with great interest rates, it is easy to begin with a single savings account and add more. Need special investment accounts--IRA, MoneyMarket, or CDs? We do that, too.

It takes a deposit of $25 to open a Regular Share Account. You must maintain this $25 balance to maintain your membership at the Credit Union. You may deposit to and withdraw funds from this account at any time, as long as a minimum balance of $25 remains in the account. The Credit Union pays monthly dividends. The dividends are paid on the average daily balance for the month. Please review our ability to withdraw funds policy for more details.
