Accounts

All legal entities (sole proprietorships, partnerships and corporations) can join the Credit Union by opening a business account with an obligatory $ 100 (10 shares) deposit. The proper documentation regarding the business must be submitted and at least one half of the business principals are required to be members of our Credit Union.

Business account holders can choose to either go with “Pay As You Go” pricing, or, pick any one of six Business Account Package Plans. 

With our Credit Union Business Package Plans, individual charges for a specified number and type of services and transactions can now be eliminated or reduced with the payment of one low monthly fee.
