With a competitive rate that’s higher than most savings rates, these savings accounts prepare members for unexpected expenses.

“One of the biggest impediments to financial stability is the lack of emergency savings,” said Tony Hale, President and CEO. “We want our members to get out of debt and save three to six months’ expenses in an emergency fund. A common question from those trying to build their emergency savings is, ‘where should I put the money.’ We created a product for exactly this purpose. It pays a very high yield when you leave it alone, but it’s still available if you have an emergency,” continued Hale.

Texell’s Save First Account pays a high-yield rate on balances between $500 and $25,000. If a withdrawal is made, the dividend rate reverts for the quarter, helping members think twice about withdrawing money for non-emergencies. Besides savings accounts, Texell also offers Money Market, Certificates of Deposit (CDs), and Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs) to help members reach financial goals.
