Treat yourself with financial security
President Ronald Reagan is remembered for many things, but the tastiest thing he did while in office was to issue a proclamation declaring the third Sunday in July as National Ice Cream Day. That favorite summertime treat has been a part of American life since Colonial times, with First Lady Dolley Madison the first to serve it at a formal White House event. Today, our nation consumes more than 1.6 million gallons of frozen dairy treats annually.
Treating yourself to a sundae, a scoop, or a drumstick makes you feel great for a short time, but if you want a good feeling that will last for years, the best treat you can give yourself is financial security. As a member of Indiana Members Credit Union, you have access to a complete family of savings choices. That way, you can choose the savings account that fits your goals.
For example, it’s a good idea to have an account set aside for emergency purposes, such as unexpected car repairs, doctor visits, or when the refrigerator suddenly stops working and needs to be replaced. That’s a great use for your Membership Savings account. Put part of each paycheck in it until you’ve saved about three months’ worth of pay on hand. You’ll earn dividends on every dollar, helping your emergency fund grow.
Once you’ve planned for emergencies, think about putting money aside for future needs. That’s where IMCU’s Money Market account and CDs can help you. The Money Market account lets you earn higher dividends on the money you’ve put aside and makes getting to it easy. You can start this handy account with as little as $2,500. CDs (the short name for certificates of deposit) let you put money away for longer periods and pay even higher dividends. You can open a CD with us with as little as $1,000 and choose the term that works best for you.
Saving for something specific? Take a look at our Christmas Club account. While it was created to help members with their holiday costs, it’s also a great option for turning small amounts of money into a larger balance. You can open your Christmas Club with as little as $5 and add small amounts each week. There’s no monthly fee and your balance earns dividends.
