The first step to gaining access to NorthCountry’s products and services is to open a savings (or “share”) account with a minimum balance of $5. Your $5 is insured and will earn dividends for as long as you wish to remain a member of the credit union. It also provides you with access to the privileges and benefits of belonging to a not-for-profit credit union including:
- Better rates
- Lower and fewer fees
- A vote for which fellow members will represent you on the credit union’s Board of Directors
