Special Purpose Accounts

Plan Ahead: Save for a Purpose

4.00% APY | Learn more


Setting aside money for a certain goal (long or short-term) is a great way to plan, prepare and ensure you have the funds available for that particular need. Saving for a vacation, holiday, college, a down payment, etc. is easy if you set some aside each pay period. You can even set up automatic transfers right into the account. It’s like having a savings jar, only more sophisticated and you earn as you’re saving.

Special Purpose Accounts give you a nice dividend, allow withdrawals at any time, and don’t impose unnecessary fees. Open one for each goal (or purpose) to easily tell them apart, and save by depositing in each one as you go.
