Savings and CDs

The Right Time to Save is Now

Are you a saver, or do you want to become one? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We offer a variety of competitive savings options, all with great features. From traditional savings accounts and CDs to our Smart Saver account, with easy, automatic contributions, we can help you find the perfect way to save. We even offer specialty accounts like Health Savings Accounts and IRAs, which may be able to offer you tax savings!

Let us help you make a savings plan and invest for both the short and long term. A few tips to help you get started:

  • Calculate your budget. Develop a monthly spending plan and examine your monthly expenses.
  • Evaluate your goals. Draft a wish list and assign an estimate of savings needed to accomplish the goals.
  • Choose your accounts. Visit with one of our associates for a financial review and let us assist you in determining which account is right for your situation.
  • Keep track of your progress. Are you done saving for a short-term expense? Do you need to re-evaluate your budget?
