Patriot offers a variety of savings options, and the convenience to make deposits online, automatically, by mail, in person at any branch, or through one of over 75,000 free ATM’s if you have a connected checking account. Whether you are saving for retirement, an education, a house, or just a rainy day, we have a savings account product that is just right for you at any stage of life.

Money Market Accounts

Keeping a portion of your money portfolio in a “safe place” doesn’t mean it can’t keep earning for you. With Patriot’s Credit Union Insured Money Market Account (CUIMMA), you could earn a higher dividend rate than in a standard savings account if you have a balance of at least $2,500. Other Patriot Money Market Account benefits include:

  • No minimum balance to open the account
  • No fees
  • Dividends paid weekly (on balances of $2,500 or more)
  • Unlimited deposits
  • Unlimited in-person withdrawals
  • Check writing capabilities
  • Tiered rate structure offers members with higher balances an increased interest rate on deposits

Prime Share Savings Accounts

Our basic savings account only requires a minimum deposit of $5, which gives you part ownership of the credit union. This is considered our membership account, so no matter what products or services you have with us, you will also have a prime share savings account available to use at any time. Only looking for a savings account? This account can be opened as a standalone account too.

  • Low minimum balance of $5
  • Dividends paid quarterly
  • Unlimited deposits
  • Unlimited in-person withdrawals
  • Account balance can be used as overdraft protection for a checking account
