At Sb1, we call our savings accounts "Shares" because the deposit you make to maintain a relationship with Sb1 represents an individual share of the Credit Union. Each of our members owns an individual share of the Credit Union.
This might seem like a small detail, but this philosophy leads to larger payouts because unlike a bank that has a first priority of paying external stockholders a profit - Sb1's priorities of paying shareholders and members is aligned since they're the same group. Therefore we convert any profits we do create into keeping your savings rates as high as possible along with keeping loan rates competitive and charging you fewer fees.
At Sb1 FCU, we have a full variety of options to cover all your savings needs with the best possible rates.
A full range of terms is available to meet your investment plans. All Share Certificates are compounded monthly and are insured for protection.
