Build My Rainy Day Fund

Make it easy with: Direct Deposit

Emergency Fund

Did you know that more than half American families do not have enough savings to cover a $500 emergency? Unexpected car repairs, medical bills or other expenses can be catastrophic if you’re not financially prepared.

It’s easier than you think to start building up your rainy day fund! The key is to save a little at a time and use Direct Deposit to keep your emergency savings separate so you’ll be less tempted to spend it on something else. Every time you get your paycheck, have a small amount deposited into a dedicated savings account If you save just $10 per week, by the end of the year you’ll have your $500.

Call (313) 965-8640 or stop by any 1DCU branch to set up Direct Deposit.

Get Rid of Holiday Debt

Holiday Debt

The key to avoiding a holiday hangover is to start early. Don’t feel like you need to have anything already saved to start saving.

You choose the amount you want to deposit into your Club Magic account. You’ll earn monthly dividends on your deposits. Then, on November 1, the funds are automatically transferred into your checking or savings account so you can spend them however you wish!

Improve My Credit Score

Credit Score

We all know that a good credit score is important to secure financing when you need it, at affordable rates. If you don’t have a credit history, however, it can seem impossible to even get started.

It’s a small dollar loan that includes a savings component. So you get access to the funds you need, build your savings and improve your credit score all at the same time!
