Holyoke Credit Union understands that savings account rates are typically low.  This is the reason we are now offering an account that offers a great rate combined with total liquidity.  We understand that many members are reluctant to tie up all of their funds in fixed-term CDs and would prefer to keep part of their money in easy-to-access cash.

The Companion Deposit Account – An account to accompany newly issued CDs that provides savers the best in savings – HIGH YIELD and NO TIME COMMITMENT.

Affected By the Government Shutdown?
We are here to help!

We know that the government shutdown is stressful for many of our members.

We may be able to help if you’re concerned about paying your Holyoke Credit Union mortgage, credit card, auto loan or other loan because you are affected by the shutdown. Please call our Retail Banking Officer, Adrienne Scott at 413-278-6852 so we can discuss your accounts—we want to help you avoid the negative consequences for missing a payment, such as being charged a late fee or reporting a late payment to a credit bureau.

Further, if you’re a federal employee whose paycheck was last direct-deposited into a Holyoke Credit Union account in November 2018, we're waiving or refunding some fees on your Holyoke Credit Union checking and savings accounts.

Again, please call our Retail Banking Officer, Adrienne Scott at 413-278-6852 if you need help with your Holyoke Credit Union accounts.
