Savings Account

A Savings (Share) Account is necessary to become a member of the Credit Union and to receive all of the services and benefits of the Credit Union, including Checking Accounts, eMax$ Online, and all loan products. It has a variable rate that is paid quarterly. The rate is voted on by the Board of Directors in accordance with Federal regulations, which prohibit dividends in excess of available earnings.

ActorCash VISA Debit Cards

Upon opening a Share Account, members are given the option to request an ActorCash VISA Debit Card. This card has no fee and provides access anywhere the VISA logo is displayed.  When members also open a Power Checking Account, they’ll earn Member Rewards Points on transactions linked to their Power Checking Account.  Savings Accounts and ATM transactions earn no Rewards Points.

New accounts are opened Monday to Friday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM in New York offices and from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM in Chicago and Los Angeles. New members are required to provide the following:

  • proof of union or organization affiliation
  • a state-issued driver’s license, or a state-issued photo ID, or a passport
  • Social Security Number
  • date of birth
  • proof of address
  • $100 deposit to open the account
