FAQ about Share Savings Accounts

Accordion Section

A Share Savings Account is simply a savings account from a credit union. It's called Share Savings because you become a shareholder, or part owner, of the credit union when you open your account.

Credit unions are not-for-profit and that's why we can pass our revenue back to you, our members and shareholders, through higher interest rates on deposits, lower rates on loans, and fewer fees. Also, you get friendly local service.

Yes, you can use Online or Mobile Banking to check your balance, set up deposits or transfer funds from anywhere, anytime.
You can deposit funds using several convenient methods:
  • Manual, one-time transfer from another account
  • Automatic, scheduled transfers from another account
  • Direct deposit from another source
  • Payroll deduction from your paycheck
  • In person at a branch
  • Over the phone by calling 800-548-5465

 

You can make up to six, free withdrawals per month using online transfers or in-person withdrawals. It's not recommended that you use your savings account for automatic payments.
Yes, you need to have $100 in your account before you start earning interest. But there's no monthly service charge if your balance remains at $5 or more.
No, Power Financial Credit Union was the first credit union in South Florida to eliminate all overdraft and NSF fees.

These fees hurt our members, especially those individuals and families who are most vulnerable financially. We don’t think that is right, so we decided to do what we always do and put the financial needs of our members above all else.

By eliminating overdraft and non-sufficient funds fees, we’re putting almost $1 million annually back in our members’ pockets for the things that matter most.

You will become a member of the credit union when you open your share savings account – it's not a separate thing you need to do before you open your account. Savings account holders automatically become part owners of the credit union.

Our membership consists of those who live, work or go to school in Broward, Charlotte, Collier, Lee, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Palm Beach County, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas, Sarasota, or St. Lucie counties.

Immediate family of all current members are also eligible to join.

We're also proud to offer membership to our Select Employee Groups. Employees and members of these organizations are always welcome to join, no matter where they live:
