REGULAR SHARE ACCOUNTS

When you join SGV Postal Credit Union by opening a Regular Share Account, you are establishing a cooperative “Share” of membership/ownership. Your Share Account establishes your right to enjoy all other Credit Union services. Regular Share Accounts must maintain a balance of $50 or more. Dividends are earned from the date of deposit. They are calculated on the average daily balance, and paid quarterly in March, June, September, and December. If your account is closed prior to the end of the dividend period, you will not receive a dividend for that period. There are no fees for deposits or withdrawals to your share account. You may make deposits to your account in person, through the mail, by direct deposit, or by placing your deposit in the secure night drop box located in the front of the Credit Union building. (Please do not leave coins in the night depository.) You may request a withdrawal from your account by telephone, and if you call by 4:00pm, a check will be mailed to you the same day. 

CERTIFICATES OF DEPOSIT

The Credit Union offers 6 month and 12 month Certificates of Deposit, with a minimum investment of $2,000. Rates on Certificates change each Monday morning- please call the office for current rates. (626) 915-3841

INDIVIDUAL RETIREMENT ACCOUNTS (IRAs)

IRAs let individual wage earners save up to $2,000 per year, while deferring income taxes on that money and the dividends it earns. A wage earner with a non-working spouse may save up to $2,250. Under current taxes laws, the full tax benefit of IRAs are available to persons not covered by qualified pension plan, to all single tax filers earning less than $25,000 a year, and to joint tax filers earning combined incomes of less than $40,000 (even if they are covered by a qualified pension plan). All IRA dividends are tax-deferred, regardless of eligibility for tax deductions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Laws regarding IRA tax deduction eligibility may change periodically. Please consult your tax advisor for current laws and details about eligibility in your specific circumstances.

CHRISTMAS CLUB ACCOUNTS

This account is targeted to help you save for holiday expenses. You may open a Christmas Club account at any time during the year, and make deposits as often as you wish. You can also designate an amount from your payroll deduction for deposit to your club account. Upon maturity, you will receive a check (or it will be added to your savings or checking account per your request) for the amount saved and dividends earned. These funds are disbursed during the first week in November. There is a $15.00 withdrawal fee.
