Paycheck Planner

 

Designed exclusively for school employees who are on a 10- or 11-month pay schedule, you can use this share certificate to distribute your pay over 12 months so you can enjoy your summer months without worrying about an interruption to your income.
 

Paycheck Planner works with direct deposit. Each pay period, a percentage of your direct deposit is automatically deposited into your SchoolsFirst FCU Paycheck Planner account. During the summer months, you’ll receive your savings just as you would your paycheck.

 

In addition, you can make a one-time additional deposit, up to a maximum of $3,000, each school year.

Features

  • Variable rate account
  • Higher dividend than Share Savings
  • Available only to school employees
  • Monthly deposits through payroll direct deposit only
  • Transfer(s) will be made on your desired designated date(s)
  • Optional one-time additional deposit up to $3,000 allowed per school year
  • No penalty-free withdrawals are allowed to ensure sufficient funds for the summer months

 

If you’d rather have more flexibility with your savings, we recommend looking at Summer Saver.
