Saving Will Give You Both Roots and Wings

Savings with benefits


Credit unions are not-for-profit financial institutions owned by their members, rather than by shareholders. Opening a savings account at Abilene Teachers Federal Credit Union establishes your membership.

You Set the Goal & We'll Help You Get There

  • You're an Owner!

    When you open a standard Savings Account you become a member of the credit union. Pretty good deal for a $25 deposit.
  • No Monthly Fees

    You save and we'll help. No annoying monthly or minimum balance fees to slow your progress.
  • Overdraft Transfer

    Mistakes happen. Set up overdraft transfer from your savings to your checking account. No fee. No kidding.

Why Save?


Saving for the future is the #1 piece of financial advice.  We hear it so often that we’ve stopped paying attention.  Bottom line, savings will cushion you from life’s obstacles and can make dreams come true.  Which of these reasons speaks loudest to you?

I became a member of the credit union when my husband and I joined accounts. I came from a large corporate bank, and the difference was a breath of fresh air!  I’ve always felt welcomed and ‘a part of the family’ when I complete transactions at the credit union. They have helped us through everyday transactions, fraudulent transactions, auto loans and personal loan advice. I always advise people to go to Abilene Teachers!
