Frequently Asked Questions About
Savings Accounts

Yes. Once you are a Leaders Credit Union member, you can open a new savings account online in just a few minutes.

Yes. Credit unions are owned by members and you must join to be a member. The membership fee is a one-time charge of $25.

Dividends are money you earn for maintaining a balance in certain accounts. An account dividend is expressed as a percentage and calculated based on the average daily balance in the account for a month. Dividends are paid monthly or quarterly, depending on the account. The APY is the Annual Percentage Yield and represents the total actual percentage that a fixed sum in an account would earn in a year, including dividend accruals.
There are three dividend tiers based on your account balances. Balances between $25,000 and $49,999.99 earn 0.25% APY¹. Balances between $50,000 and $99,999.99 earn 0.50% APY¹. Balances more than $100,000 earn the highest dividends, 0.75% APY¹.
You can keep your account open if your balance goes below the minimum deposit amount. However, your APY will drop to 0.05% until your total balance once again exceeds $25,000.
