Got questions about recent updates to your FAIRWINDS Savings Account(s)? We can answer them here, and show you how to make saving even easier.

We regularly review our products and services to ensure that we are providing you with the best value possible. Part of our reviews may include making updates to the Service Charge Schedule.

What’s changing?

  • The new minimum balance requirement for Regular Savings Accounts will be $300 beginning May 10, 2016. (See the new ways to avoid the monthly service charge below.)
  • Secondary Savings Accounts will automatically be converted to a FAIRWINDS Regular Savings Account(s) beginning May 10, 2016. Remember that for each Regular Savings Account you own, a minimum balance of $300 is required per account.
  • The new minimum balance requirement does not apply to members under the age of 18.

Previously, a savings account was required in order to have any other services with FAIRWINDS. This is no longer a requirement. While we encourage every member to save for something, if you choose not to save at FAIRWINDS, you can simply close the accounts.

Ways to avoid the monthly service charge:

Any ONE of these items will waive the Regular Savings monthly service charge:

  • Maintain an average monthly account balance of at least $300
  • Deposit or transfer a total of at least $25 per month
  • Maintain an average monthly combined savings balances of at least $10,000 (excluding checking balances)
  • Members under the age of 18
