Opening a savings account is a fundamental step on any financial journey. It’s more than a place where you store your money. It’s a symbol of your commitment to achieving financial independence and, ultimately, success. We’re here to help you build that foundation — and see you through to the finish line.

Why plan your future with Marine?



No amount of money is too small to save. At Marine, you can get your savings underway with as little as $5 initial deposit.



Check your account balance and schedule transfers anytime, anywhere with online banking or the Marine Mobile app.



Because all of our members have different financial goals, we offer several kinds of savings accounts, each offering unique benefits.

Choose the right path for your savings

Marine Credit Union Share savings accounts

Our primary savings plan is an insured, dividend-paying account that can be opened for as little as $5.

Christmas Club accounts

Avoid the strain that can come with holiday shopping by joining our Christmas Club. It’s a savings plan designed to help you prepare financially for Christmas.

Money market accounts

Depending on your goals, an ordinary savings account might not give you enough bang for your buck. With a money market account, you can enjoy more flexibility and a higher annual percentage rate than regular savings.

Investment and retirement accounts

Long-term financial goals — from saving for a down payment on a car or home to a secure retirement — are often years in the making. Having a plan early ensures you don’t lose sight of those goals. No matter your financial destination, we’ll help you arrive safe and sound.

  • Traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA)
  • Roth IRA  
  • Share Certificates
  • Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA)

Save towards a goal

Set a goal and learn how much, and how long, it will take to reach.
