Savings Accounts

Every member has a base share or savings account.  It is your membership with Wawa Employees’ Credit Union and requires a $5.00 minimum balance.  You will see $5.00 on hold in your savings account for the base share.  All other accounts are optional.  Interest is paid on your savings account quarterly. See the Share Rates page for current rates.  There are no withdrawal limits* on savings accounts and the funds may be withdrawn with a MasterCard Debit card, an ATM STAR card, in person at the Credit Union office, or by requesting an official (bank) check payable to you from your account.  Checks can be requested through Online Banking, the Express Line Audio System or calling the Credit Union and speaking to a Member Services Representative.

See the following areas under the Services Tab for more details

  • MasterCard Debit card/ ATM STAR card
  • Online Banking
  • Express Line Audio System

*The MasterCard Debit card and ATM STAR card have daily usage limits for security purposes

 

Important Information About Procedures For Opening A New Account:  To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

What this means for you:  When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

If you presently have an account with us and you open additional accounts, add joint owners to an existing account or apply for a loan, we must also verify and retain copies of your identification.

We ask for your understanding as we work to support these efforts to maintain the sercurity of your funds and our country.
