No matter what you’re saving for, Delta Community Credit Union makes it simple. All you need to open a Personal Savings Account is a $5 deposit, and you’ll immediately start earning competitive dividends, which are paid out monthly. And once you're a member, you're a member for life, regardless of whether you move, change jobs or retire.

Saving for something extra special?

You might want to open an Additional Personal Savings Account that allows you to save for something outside your normal realm of savings. And we invite you to call it whatever you want. Your “Beach Within Reach Account.” Your “University of Savings Account.” Your “Brand Spanking New Car Account.” With an Additional Personal Savings Account, you’ll be able to keep the funds for the special things you’re saving for in their own special place. And just like our regular Personal Savings Account, it earns the same competitive dividends and is accessible through Online Banking and through our many credit union branch locations.

Check to see just how close you are to that beach vacation or new car with our free Savings Calculators.

  • Additional Savings Account FAQs
  • What is the benefit of an Additional Savings Account?
    Having a second savings will be convenient to save for a special occasion, or for a major purchase, by keeping your funds separate from your primary savings. You may find this similar to a Christmas Account but with an added benefit; the Additional Savings Account earns the same dividend rate as does your Primary Savings.

    Can I open an Additional Savings Account from my Primary Savings Account online or do I need to fill out a request form?
    To open an Additional Savings account from within Online Banking, simply click on Add an Account from the Additional Services tab.
    If you are not an Online Banker, complete the Membership Application. You may return the form by mail, fax or stop by your local branch. It only takes a couple of minutes to open this account for you.

    Can I open more than one Additional Savings Account?
    Yes. You can open multiple Additional Savings Accounts by following the steps above.

    Is there a minimum deposit required for the Additional Savings Account?

    Can the joint owner of a minor's Sandy Saver account request to open an Additional Savings Account?

    Will I be able to use my ATM or Visa Check Card to withdraw funds from the Additional Savings Account?

If your employer cannot enter a dash in the account number, then you will need to choose your Primary Savings Account or your Checking Account for the direct deposit.

    *Reg D - Savings and Money Market Account Limitations:
    The account owners will not be permitted to make more than six (6) withdrawals from the Savings Account per month for the purpose of transferring funds from the Savings Account to another account with the Credit Union or for making a payment to a third party by means of preauthorized or automatic transfer, telephonic agreement (e.g. Audioline, Online Banking, or Online Bill Pay), order or instruction. The following transfers or withdrawals do not count toward the six (6) withdrawal limitation: (a) any transfer for the purposes of repaying the Credit Union loans; (b) transfers among accounts of the same person, when made by mail, messenger, ATM, or in person, and (c) withdrawal checks issued via Audioline. You are allowed a certain number of withdrawals during a month and the entire calendar year, after which service charges may be assessed.

  • Reg D FAQs
  • How can I make a transfer after I have exceeded Reg D?
    To make a transfer after the Reg D has been exceeded, you can:

    • Transfer the money at an ATM
    • In person with a teller
    • Mail in a request to transfer funds

    What is Regulation D?
    Reg D is a federal regulation that limits the number and type of withdrawals from Savings, Additional Savings or Money Market Accounts to six per month (per account).

    What is the purpose of Regulation D?
    The purpose of Reg D is to regulate the level of reserves a financial institution maintains. The required reserve amount for each financial institution is based on the balances it has in its transactional accounts, such as Checking Accounts.

    What policy change is Delta Community making to comply with Reg D?
    Overdrafts from Savings or Money Market Accounts to cover debit card transactions will be included in the six (6) withdrawals permitted under Reg D. Therefore, debit card transactions that attempt to draw from Savings or Money Market Accounts when there are insufficient funds in checking - beyond the six permitted each month - will be denied, unless other forms of overdraft are set up on the account.


    How does Reg D affect my account?
    If you have a Delta Community Savings or Money Market Account and frequent withdrawals are made from any one of those accounts to cover overdrafts from your Checking Account, Reg D withdrawal limits could possibly result in denied debit card transactions on your account.


    Click here for overdraft protection options.

    What types of transactions are counted toward the 6 (six) Reg D withdrawals permitted each month?


    • ACH transfers from a Savings or Money Market Account to another Financial Institution or third party for payment by means of a preauthorized or automatic transfer, telephone agreement, order or instruction. (e.g. Audioline or Online Banking, etc.)
    • Withdrawal checks issued from a Savings or Money Market Account via Audioline/Online Banking when made payable to a third party
    • Audioline/Online Banking transfers from a Savings or Money Market Account to any Delta Community Account
    • Automatic transfers from a Savings or Money Market Account to cover checks, ACH, or EFT (overdraft protection)
    • Checking Account debit card transactions which overdraft from a Savings or Money Market Account when the funds in the Checking Account are insufficient.
    • Recurring scheduled transfers from a Savings or Money Market Account to any other Delta Community Account.


    What types of transactions are not counted toward the 6 (six) Reg D withdrawals permitted each month under Reg D?

    • Withdrawal checks issued via Audioline/Online Banking when made payable to the member and mailed to the member
    • Any transfer for the purpose of repaying a Delta Community CU loan
    • Transfers among accounts of the same person when made by mail, ATM or in person

    When does the Reg D counter reset?
    The Reg D counter resets at the beginning of each month, bringing the debit card and the ACH/Draft counter back to zero.

    If I have two Savings Accounts am I limited to 6 Reg D withdrawals for each account or 6 in total for both?
    Each month you are permitted six Reg D withdrawals from each Savings Account.

    Are Reg D withdrawals on other Savings Accounts counted towards the Reg D count for the Money Market Accounts?

    No, each Reg D governed account is allowed 6 Reg D withdrawals per month.

    Do ATM transfers from Savings and Money Market Accounts count toward Reg D?
    No, ATM transfers will not count towards Reg D.




  • Pulling credit report and Early Warning for new account
  • Is a credit report pulled when a new membership account is applied for to join the credit union?

    Early Warning report to determine qualification for membership for the applicant.

  • APYE rates on Savings Accounts
  • Why do dividend percentages sometimes look different on some Savings Accounts that should have the same rate?
    You will notice on your statement that the dividend rate is the same on all Savings Accounts within the same tier schedule. The Annual Percentage Yield Earned shows the dollar amount of dividends as a percentage of the actual average daily balance in the account. Therefore, different accounts with different average daily balances, may have different APYEs, but be assured they are calculated from the same Dividend Rate as long as they are in the same tier. APYE is affected by deposits and withdrawals during the dividend period. APYE is the Annual Percentage Yield, which takes the dollar amount of the dividends earned as a percentage of the average daily balance. The APYE shows the relation of the dividends earned to the actual balance in the account. It is required for all periodic statements.
