Carter Savings Account

Even with all of the technological changes in the banking industry and new opportunities to save, we believe that there is still room for simplicity. We cannot be simpler than our savings account.

Our Carter Savings Accounts are easy to use and will help you build up funds to cover both planned and unexpected future expenses. If you already have a checking account with us, opening a savings account will allow you to set up free automatic transfers from checking to savings. Whether you schedule a transfer once a week or once a month, this feature makes it even more convenient to build up an emergency fund or nest egg without actually thinking about it.

 

 

 

Requirement: $50.00 minimum to open an account.  30 day grace period to get to minimum balance.

***By law, you may make no more than six (6) transfers or withdrawals from your account each month.  This can only occur three times in a rolling twelve month period or the account type may change or account may be closed. A $5.00 fee will be assessed for each transfer made that exceeds the six (6) limit per month. Exceptions to this are transactions or withdrawals made by mail, messenger, ATM or in person. Interest rate and annual percentage yield may change. At our discretion, we may change the interest rate daily.

Fees may reduce earnings.
