Savings & Investments

When it comes to investments, we have what you want; great rates, convenience, and security (deposits insured to $250,000).

Regular Share Account
A Regular Share account is similar to a passbook savings account at a bank. Opening a Regular Share account is how you become a member/owner of the credit union. The initial $5.00 deposit required to open this account is also one share of ownership of the credit union, which is why it is called a share account. Once your account is opened, you become eligible for all of the benefits and services the credit union offers. This account features unlimited deposits and withdrawals (including ATM withdrawals), and a rate higher than passbook accounts at most banks.
A checking account with Safeway LAFCU means no minimum balance requirement, no monthly fee, no per check fee, no check limit per month (dividends paid on account balances over $1500.00). The first 50 checks are complementary and overdraft protection is available for all Safeway LAFCU Visa Card holders. For a checking account application, please contact the credit union.
Money Market Account
This savings account pays a higher dividend rate than regular shares. The minimum balance requirement is $2,500.00. Funds can be added at anytime, no term requirement. Withdrawals are limited to 5 per month. Interest is earned daily and paid monthly.
Christmas Club
Safeway's Christmas Club is a great way to prepare for the holidays. Christmas Club is an interest bearing account and the funds are automatically transferred to your Savings Account on November 1st of each year or you can have a check mailed to your home by calling the Credit Union at (562) 864-2524. You can start a Christmas Club account through your employer with payroll deduction, direct deposit or you can send deposits to the Credit Union by mail. Once you sign up, this account renews automatically each year unless you choose to close it. So start saving today for the holidays with a Christmas Club account at Safeway Credit Union.
Share Certificates

Dividends compound and are paid monthly or you may choose to have dividend checks mailed to your home. If you want to earn high dividends without the high risk, open a Share Certificate today.

Payroll Deduction
Most of the companies affiliated with the credit union offer payroll deduction to their employee's. Funds are automatically deducted from employees paychecks each payday and sent to the credit union (one less errand to run). Payroll deduction can be used for making loan payments and/or deposits into savings, checking, and/or Christmas club accounts. With payroll deduction, it's easier to save, because "If you don't see it, you won't spend it."
