For school employees, Summer Saver helps ensure you will have sufficient funds to get you through the months if you don't receive a paycheck.

While Summer Saver was created to help you set aside money for the summer, your savings are yours to spend on anything you want.

Unique account features

Details you should know

  • Deposits must be made through payroll deduction, direct deposit, or automatic transfer from your linked SchoolsFirst FCU account.
  • Minimum monthly deposit is $1; maximum is $2,000.
  • You can change the amount and frequency of your deposits at any time.
  • Every summer (you choose any date between June 1 and August 31), your savings will be automatically transferred to your SchoolsFirst FCU checking or savings account (whichever you choose).

If you need a more restrictive account to ensure you have money for the summer, consider Paycheck Planner.
