How Does a Holiday Savings Account Work?

Our Holiday Savings Account is separate from your regular savings account. We designed it as an easy way for you to save throughout the year via regular deposits or Payroll Deductions.

We automatically transfer your funds to your UMe Checking Account in early November. If you don’t have a Checking Account, we’ll send the money to your UMe Savings Account. Just in time for the holiday season!

Enjoy peace of mind knowing that the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) provides automatic and free account insurance.
The NCUA is an independent federal organization that insures each account for up to $250,000.
