Membership Savings Account – your first Elevations account

Your Membership Savings Account establishes your membership with Elevations. When you open the account, you’ll make an initial $25 deposit; this is your membership share in the credit union. You can add additional funds to this account, but the $25 membership share must remain in the account for as long as you are a member. After you have a Membership Savings Account, you can add checking accounts, money market accounts, credit cards, loans and more!
