A savings account at Amarillo Community Federal Credit Union differs slightly from other financial institutions in terms and benefits.
When you open a savings account at ACFCU and deposit your money, you are actually becoming a shareholder in ACFCU and forming the basis of a unique relationship that no other type of financial institution can offer you.
A savings account can make a difference in your life. It can mean security, peace of mind, and college education, a foundation to make all your dreams come true.
ACFCU offers a vast array of Savings and Investments. To start your savings program please contact a New Accounts Specialist at 806-358-7561.
