A small $5 deposit in our Regular Savings (Share) account establishes your membership with Heartland Federal Credit Union and becomes the cornerstone to your financial life.

Building Your Nest Egg
It’s been shown time and again, that a successful financial life can only be obtained with systematic and continuous savings. When you make regular routine deposits, you slowly build your nest egg. That nest egg will protect you against short-term bumps in the road and lead the way to a comfortable retirement in the long run.
We encourage direct deposit with payroll allocation
to help you maintain and build your savings plan.
Holiday dinners and decorations. Mountain trips and beach vacations. Putting a little away now ensures a lot more fun later. Open a Holiday or Vacation Club Savings Account and be ready when the time comes. You can even open a special Club account to save for that new flat screen TV or home improvement project.
Set up automatic transfers from your paycheck(s)
to your designated accounts so you don’t even miss the money. Getting to your goal will be on autopilot! Transfers will continue until you cancel in writing. Should an emergency arise, you will always have full access to your funds without penalty.
Save for everything holiday related or just the gifts. Either way, funds will automatically be transferred to your Regular Share Account on November 1
in time for all your holiday shopping.
