Supplemental Savings

A supplemental savings is an additional savings account that you can add any time to your account. While this differs from the Share Savings account (which keeps your membership open with Blue), these accounts are a great way to organize your finances and create savings "buckets" for special projects or needs - such as funds to save for your annual car insurance premiums or even that rainy day!

A supplemental share savings has no minimum balance to open, but you must keep a $25.00 daily balance or more to earn your maximum dividend.

Membership Share Savings

A member’s first Share Savings account establishes their membership at Blue Federal Credit Union. The motto “once a member, always a member” applies as long as the Share account remains open. This provides voting privileges and eligibility to use all credit union products and services!

Open a Share savings:

  • See if you're eligible to join Blue
  • You must have at least $5.00 to open your Share Savings account. This amount keeps your membership open.
  • You must keep a $25.00 daily balance or more to earn your maximum dividend

  • Direct Rollovers - Funds withdrawn from qualified plans to be put in an IRA are reported to the IRS but allows the member to avoid the mandatory 20% withholding that would take place if they took cash distribution. Direct distribution from a qualified plan may be placed in an IRA.
