When you open a Savings Account, you become a shareholder of the Credit Union and join a community of members who are investing in each other. While you save for purchases, vacations or a rainy day, your savings could become a loan for somebody’s new home, vehicle or education. With First Financial Credit Union, your money stays local and is put to work so you get the rewards in the form of higher dividends and fewer fees.
