Share (Savings) Account

A Share Account is your primary savings account with ARC. Just a $5 minimum deposit, establishes your membership and opens the door to all of the other benefits ARC can offer.

Our Switch Kit makes it easy to switch your accounts from your current financial institution to ARC Federal Credit Union.

Share Certificate

When you commit your deposit to a longer term, you’ll earn a higher yield by opening a Share Certificate. Our Share Certificates were developed to benefit more of our membership. Our various terms and low minimum deposit allow many members to take advantage of these higher interest rates.

  • Flexible Terms – 6 months to 60 months
  • Low Minimum – Only a $500 minimum is required
  • High Yields
  • Guaranteed Earnings – Principle and interest payments are guaranteed

Dividends are calculated monthly and posted on the last business day of each month.

Traditional IRA

You can retire without the financial worry when you begin saving in your ARC FCU Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Prepare for a comfortable retirement, or reach other major financial goals with the help of an IRA from ARC. If you have earned income and are under 70 ½ this year, you can open up your own Traditional IRA regardless of your participation in other retirement plans. ARC's Traditional IRA saves you today because you receive immediate tax-deferred earnings.

  • Contributions may be tax deductible. Qualified withdrawals are taxable income
  • Invest up to $5,500 or 100% of earned income, whichever is less
    • Between ages 50 and 70 ½, an additional $1,000 "catch up contribution" may be made or 100% of earned income, whichever is less
  • Earnings are tax deferred until withdrawn
  • Withdrawals before age 59 ½ are subject to a 10% IRS penalty tax and taxed as ordinary income
    • Some exceptions include: death, disability, medical expenses over 7.5% of AGI, medical insurance premiums during period of unemployment
  • Required minimum distribution at age 70 ½

How Are IRAs Insured?

Combined balances of all your ARC FCU IRA Certificates and IRA Shares are federally insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). All of your IRA funds are insured separately from your other ARC shares.

Federal Government Regulation D

Federal Regulation D impacts the number of transactions allowed on certain types of accounts. The following ARC Federal Credit Union accounts are subject to Regulation D: Christmas Club, Vacation Club, Kids Club, Special Savings, and Auxiliary Share. The regulation was implemented by the Board of Govenors of the Federal Reserve System to ensure that financial institutions maintain adequate reserves for the funds they have on deposit.

How Will Reg D Affect your Account?

Effective July 1, 2017, ARC Federal Credit Union will be making changes to the accounts above in accordance with Federal Reserve Board Regulation D. Regulation D requires that no more than six (6) electronic transfers per calendar month are performed. Once the limit has been reached, the system will no longer allow such a transaction and any automatic transfers may be returned as unpaid. Electronic transfers are defined as: transfers between ARC FCU accounts or to other insitutions when made by telephone, fax, online banking, mobile banking, automatic or preauthorized bill payments including ACH; automatic debits; or automatic transfers to cover an overdraft in your checking account. There is no limit to in-person transactions or requests for check withdrawals made payable to you via telephone.

THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO YOUR CHECKING OR REGULAR SAVINGS ACCOUNT.

An ARC Money Market may be your best choice. ARC's money market allows you up to 3 free withdrawals a month, while offering you a higher interest rate. Maintaining a minimum balance of $2,000 will earn you a great return on investment.
