EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO EARN ONE OF THE HIGHEST SAVINGS RATES AVAILABLE.
BHCU’s iSAVE account snapshot.
BHCU’s new high yield savings account is designed to support our members’ long-term savings goals in pursuit of their personal financial independence. “Pay yourself first” is the driving force behind this product, which will help individuals achieve their savings goals. No matter what you are saving for – retirement, a vacation home, or education, BHCU’s iSAVE account will help you get there.
What it means to be a SAVER.
Let’s face it, saving money is no easy task in this spend first world we live in. It’s the discipline to avoid spending when you don’t have the money, making and sticking to a budget, and prioritizing your needs that make you a SAVER. And BHCU respects a SAVER.
The SAVER expectation.
Each SAVER’S focus is to acquire personal savings to reach their saving goals. BHCU’s iSAVE account is intended to meet the needs of every member and understand everyone’s situation is different. Therefore, BHCU believes you should save how you want, when you want based on the general account conditions with no fees and no minimums!
In order to open an iSAVE account, each member in good standing must read and complete the iSAVE Commitment Letter, making you an official member of the iSAVE Club.
BHCU’s iSAVE account rate is variable but it is not a “teaser rate.” This is a high-yield savings account designed exclusively for BHCU members. In keeping with the intention of being a long-term savings account, each SAVER will earn the highest interest rate if no more than one (1) withdrawal is completed monthly. However, if a SAVER makes more than one (1) withdrawal that account will still receive our highly competitive “Regular Share” interest rate during that month.
