Money Market Accounts
Keeping a portion of your money portfolio in a “safe place” doesn’t mean it can’t keep earning for you.

Other Patriot Money Market Account benefits include:
- $1,000 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
- Unlimited deposits
- Unlimited in-person withdrawals
- Account balance can be used as overdraft protection for a checking account
