Membership at Arkansas Best Federal Credit Union starts by opening a Share Savings Account, and you don't have to open your account with a big pile of money. Although you can deposit as much as you like, you can open an account with as little as $5.00.
Every valued member of Arkansas Best Federal Credit Union has a Share Savings Account. Your ABFCU Savings Account is insured up to $250,000 by NCUA, an agency of the federal government. And, our Savings Account usually pays higher dividends than most other financial institutions.
Shares is another name for Savings. With a minimum deposit of $5.00 in to an ABFCU Share Account, you can become a member and earn great rates through various savings accounts we offer. Savings deposits may be made in any amount you desire. You may use Direct Deposit, payroll deduction, U.S. mail, truck mail, Shared Branching, or drop by and visit us in person. We also have a night deposit and a depository ATM at our Fort Smith location, for your after-hours deposits. You can also securely and conveniently deposit any checks into your share account by using our Mobile Deposit feature within our Mobile App.
Savings may be withdrawn from your account at any time by calling at 800-227-8968 or 479-649-2060 during regular business hours or by calling Stan (audio response) at 800-290-6505 or 479-649-9495. You can also make withdrawals through Shared Branching.
This account offers you a savings option for the Holiday season and it pays you dividends. Withdrawals are available November 1 through December 31, as you request. You can make deposits to your Christmas Club in any way you choose throughout the year.
Use this account to save for a special trip or event, , or just to have a way to separate your savings for any reason. You also earn dividends while doing it. Withdrawals are available as you request.
