Membership requirements are few, but you must open a Basic Savings account to be a member of ElecTel. An initial deposit of just $1 establishes your membership and gives you ownership in the credit union. Why is this so important? As a member, you are now part owner of ElecTel. You can participate in the annual meeting and have a say in the direction of the credit union. As a member and shareholder of the credit union you get the perks of ownership, not some suits on Wall Street!

This is a savings account similar to the Regular Savings account. This account can be used to save for a special occasion, event, etc. Once a Regular Savings account is opened, an initial deposit of only $10 starts you earning dividend rates that are compounded daily and paid monthly on this “Special” account.
