Christmas Club Account

The holiday season sneaks up on us all. It’s not easy to come up with the cash to cover gifts, travel and holiday entertainment. Save for the season a little at a time throughout the year with a DCTFCU Christmas Club Account.

How Does It Work?

You can open a Christmas Club Account at anytime of the year. Make regular deposits to the account throughout the year and earn dividends on your savings! Your annual Christmas savings, plus earnings, will be transferred directly into your DCTFCU share draft account or share savings account each year by October 15. (If you prefer, a check can be mailed to your address on file.)

Your Savings will Add Up Fast

Here’s what you’ll save over 26 paydays, not including dividends:

At $10 per payday...You'll save $260.
At $25 per payday...You'll save $650.
At $50 per payday...You'll save $1300.
At $75 per payday...You'll save $1950.
At $100 per payday...You'll save $2600.

See our current dividend rates.

Put Your Christmas Savings on Autopilot

You can make deposits in person or by mail, but the easiest way to save is to set up payroll deduction with your direct deposit. When you open your Christmas Club Account, just indicate how much you’d like to save each pay period on the Christmas Club Account application. (No need to submit a separate payroll deduction form.) However, if you need to change the amount of your payroll deduction at a later date, you must complete a Payroll Allotment Form and confirm all your current deductions.

What’s Required?

Your deposits to the account between October 1 and September 30 the following year will need to total at least $100, and you may not withdraw the funds prior to October 1 each year without a fee. (See our fee schedule.)

Your Christmas Club Account will automatically renew on October 1 each year. Contact the credit union prior to October 1 if you don’t wish to renew for the following year.
