Savings Accounts

To become a member of the Credit Union, you will be required to place a $5.00 deposit into your share (savings) account. Your savings account is also referred to as a share account, signifying that you are also a part owner of the Credit Union. Every member has an equal vote at the annual meeting where the Credit Union's Board of Directors are elected. It is important that you become involved with the Credit Union, as your voice will help decide its future. Your savings are safe with Utah Power Credit Union! Each deposit account is insured with the NCUA (National Credit Union Administration) for up to $250,000.

 

At a credit union, the interest paid to your account is also referred to as a dividend. The Credit Union invests your shares (savings) in investments and loans, and after expenses are paid, the profit is returned to you in the form of dividends. There are no paid board of directors or stockholders at credit unions. All earnings are paid to you, the owner, or retained as Credit Union capital.

 

Utah Power Credit Union has consistently paid one of the highest dividend rates in the nation for many years. Each quarter, the Board of Directors reviews the earnings and expenses of the Credit Union and then declares a dividend rate. It has been the commitment of the Board of Directors to return as much profit as possible back to the member-owners while maintaining a sound, secure financial entity.
