Savings FAQs

Every member at First Tech begins with a Membership Savings Account. It's the first account you open and where your original $5 membership share lives. Members are only required to have one account - a Membership Savings Account.

If you'd like to open additional savings accounts, the Carefree Savings is another option. With no minimum balance and no monthly fees, this account truly lives up to its name.

Dividend rates do vary between accounts, and we invite you to explore all savings account options.
