Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) offer unique and exciting savings opportunities based on your financial needs. Fairfield Federal Credit Union offers three options for you to choose which type of tax-advantage savings plan works best for you!
Contributions to this type of IRA may be tax deductible in the year in which the contributions are made, and taxes due on the earned interest are deferred until the funds are withdrawn.
Contributions are post-tax and growth may be tax-free.
Since withdrawals are not reportable income, they will not affect your adjusted gross income during retirement. Contributions can be made after age 70½, and no withdrawals are required during the accountholder's life. Withdrawals from a Roth IRA are tax- and penalty-free as long as the account has been open for at least five tax years and you are either over 59 ½, disabled or buying a first home.
Contributions can be made up to April 15th for the previous year.

Certificates of Deposit
To help you earn the most money, Fairfield Community Credit Union always offers exceptional rates on our Certificates of Deposit. Our Certificate terms range from 3 months to 2 years, giving you the freedom to choose which rate and term best fits your needs.
Share Certificates of Deposit
Share Certificates of Deposit are another great way to save. You can open a Share Certificate Account with a minimum balance of $1,000. Share Certificates of Deposit are also available with terms of 3 months to 24 months.
Our Share Savings Certificates provide competitive, fixed dividend rates for each term.
Share Savings Account
Our philosophy that Members actually own shares in Fairfield Community Credit Union led us to call these accounts Share Accounts. The name is unique, but a Share Account is essentially the same as a conventional savings account at any other financial institution. In order to continue FCCU membership in good standing, Members are required to maintain a minimum balance in their Share Accounts of only $5.00. In addition to FCCU membership, the Share Account entitles Members to dividends payments which are paid quarterly based upon the daily average balance method.
