Account Rates

Day by day, it all adds up to more money for you.

Together, we've got things going in a good direction

At NorthCountry, we pay competitive rates on Savings, Money Markets, Certificates, IRAs and dividend-earning checking accounts. These added funds build up your balance and help you reach your financial goals.

The first step to gaining access to NorthCountry’s products and services is to open a savings (or “share”) account. This account has a minimum balance requirement of $5. This is not a fee. Your $5 is insured and earns dividends for as long as you remain a member of the credit union. Please visit our savings page to view the privileges and benefits of belonging to a not-for-profit credit union.
