Credit Union Account Options

Towpath Credit Union offers a wide variety of savings options to fit your financial needs. Learn more about our offerings below, or stop by your local branch to open an account today.

Savings

Membership Share Savings Account

Your deposit of $5 or more into a Towpath Credit Union Share Savings account not only establishes your lifetime membership, it also gives you the opportunity to take advantage of additional Towpath Credit Union financial services.


Share Savings Special Account

Special share savings accounts are perfect for setting aside a little bit each month and keeping it away from your Regular Share account. Whether you're trying to save for vacation or just want an emergency fund, a sub-account makes it easy.


Holiday Savings

A sub-account for that special time of year. Don’t be caught out in the cold when the post-holiday bills arrive. Plan ahead with a Towpath Credit Union Holiday Savings account. Accounts are disbursed automatically into your checking account in early October which gives you plenty of time to get your shopping done.


Health Savings Account

If you are covered under a high-deductible health plan, you may be eligible for a Health Savings Account (HSA) with Towpath Credit Union!

With a Towpath Credit Union HSA, you may be able to take advantage of tax-free employer contributions, tax deductible member contributions, and tax-free distributions if used for qualified medical expenses.

Youth and Teen Accounts

Youth Accounts

Towpath Credit Union is proud to offer two great options for those in our communities under the age of eighteen to join the credit union and begin the responsible use of credit union accounts. 


Early Savers Membership Savings (Ohio Transfers to Minors Act Account)

The Early Savers Membership Savings follows the Ohio Transfers to Minors Act framework and is offered for all minors under the age of eighteen. With these accounts, a person over the age of eighteen acts as custodian for the funds in the account, while they are owned by the minor. The custodian is responsible for making sure the funds in the account are used for the benefit of the minor.  At an age designated by the custodian, between 18 and 25, the custodian is responsible for delivering the funds to the beneficiary at that time. 


Teen Membership 

The Teen Membership is a joint account-ownership that allows teens fifteen years or older to establish their first credit union accounts with an adult as a joint-signer. This Membership comes standard with a savings account, but a checking account, debit card, and other products and features may be added at the direction of the adult.
