Pre-Authorized Contributions

A Pre-Authorized Contribution is a regularly-scheduled transfer that's set up to add to a savings plan. This is often the simplest and most convenient way to begin and grow your savings. Put money away for a down-payment on your first home, your child's education, your retirement, or any big life event. 

How it works

Set your own contribution schedule. You decide if you're going to contribute weekly, biweekly, semi-monthly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually. Match your contributions to your payroll schedule, so that your savings are put aside automatically.

Start small. Regular contributions can be as little as $25; increase them when you can afford to save more.

Use ACU to save. You can set up a transfer from another financial institution into an ACU savings account or investment product. Learn how to set up transfers online here: Transfers Between Your Accounts

Earn compound interest. Why wait until you have a big lump sum of money to invest? By starting early and investing regularly, the interest you earn becomes part of your investment, so your interest starts earning interest, too.
