Share Savings Account

Your basic membership account, a Share Account, works just like a regular savings account. Open it with just $25.00. This is your “share” in the credit union. That's what makes us different from a bank. With Stamford Federal, you are truly a member-owner. Depositing and maintaining this minimum balance, means you're eligible for all the benefits that come with credit union membership.

Holiday Club Account

Don't let the holidays sneak up on you and stress you out. With a Holiday Club account, you can save for the holiday season throughout the year. Open your account at any time during the year, receive your funds in November and face the holidays worry-free!

Summer Paycheck Account

If you're a teacher, school worker or just want to save a little extra for summer expenses, the Summer Paycheck Account is here for you! Designed especially for members who don't work during the summer or need some extra money for summer expenses, the account can be opened at any time during the year. You'll receive your funds on the second Wednesday in June.

Certificates

Looking for the highest rate on your savings with none of the risk that comes from other investments? Stamford Federal share certificates are a great way to watch your savings grow. With as little as $1,000 ($500 for members 21 and younger) you can choose certificate terms from 90 days to 60 months. Share certificates guarantee you an exact return on your investment for a length of time that you choose. Fixed rates means no unwelcome surprises, just more savings for you!
