As a member and owner of the credit union, you are considered a shareholder. Therefore, your savings account is referred to as a Share Savings Account.
This account is similar to a passbook savings account at other financial institutions with one important exception: a C&CCU Share Savings Account pays a higher dividend. These higher interest rates are based on the average daily balance and are posted quarterly to encourage savings and help your finances to grow.
Secondary Savings Accounts
Catholic & Community Credit Union offers two accounts designed specifically for your special savings. With an “I Want” Savings Account, you can save up for a big splurge like a vacation, vehicle or even a new home. With our Christmas Club Account, you can save all year to make the holidays merry and bright. Withdrawals are limited to encourage savings, and both accounts earn generous returns. With a minimum balance of just $5, you can start saving today!
Investment Options with C&CCU
Catholic & Community Credit Union understands that each member has a unique financial profile. That is why we offer a full range of products to help you save money and achieve financial success. Click on the links below to learn about each investment option.

Certificates are popular investment tools that pay a high return on investments for a fixed period of time. At C&CCU, we offer multiple maturity options. Members can choose from terms ranging from six months to five years, all with a minimum deposit of $500.
Certificates feature high interest rates, which compound quarterly to increase your annual yield.
Individual Retirement Accounts
At Catholic & Community Credit Union, we realize that financial security for the future is something everyone must consider. Whether you are just starting to consider retirement savings or getting ready to retire, we offer an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) that will help you build wealth and manage your retirement income.
This account allows you to defer taxes on a portion of your income while enjoying superior interest rates. Earnings accrued on this account are not taxed until you begin to make withdrawals. Investors aged 59 1/2 and older can access their funds without penalty. Investors must begin receiving periodic payments by age 70 1/2.
With this option, your contributions from income will not be tax-free, but you will still enjoy great interest rates. Plus, you can access your contributions tax- and penalty-free any time after an initial five-year waiting period. Earnings may be withdrawn if the member meets specific requirements.
Each of these options may be managed through an IRA Accumulation Savings Account or IRA Certificates. Determining which investment method is right for you depends upon the initial deposit available and the desired interest rate for your investment. Each method is outlined below. For specific rates on each option, click here.
IRA Accumulation Savings Account

Share Draft Checking
At C&CCU, we offer a unique type of checking called a Share Draft Account. This account is much like the usual checking accounts you’d find at other financial institutions, but without the fees and charges. Our Share Draft Accounts offer:

• Free e-statements
• Optional overdraft protection
• No minimum balance requirement
• Interest-earning based on the average daily balance

If you don’t meet the high-dividend requirements, you’ll simply earn the standard return for that month.
Specifically designed for members who need a second chance at checking, our Rebound Checking is a great way to build a strong financial base.
