Lucky for you, EPFCU has got your back with multiple ways to cover your holiday expenses. Choose one — choose them all!
Open a uChoose Club Account
Starting with just $5‚ you can start setting aside money now for the holiday expenses you know are coming. We make saving easy for you using Direct Deposit with Payroll Distribution. Directly depositing funds helps you pay yourself first — you won’t spend your money before you can save it.
You'll earn higher dividends while funds are held in your account. You tell us when you'll need the funds, and we'll transfer them to your Checking Account on the first day of the month you choose, but not before. This is a great way to make sure your funds are saved for your intended purpose!

*APY = Annual Percentage Yield. Share Account dividends are compounded and paid monthly. Dividend Rate and APYs are variable and are subject to change. If you close your share account prior to the payment of dividends, you will not receive the accrued dividend. Fees could reduce earnings on an account.
Get a Holiday Loan
We offer special holiday signature loans during November and December to help you cover the costs of celebrations, travel and gifts. They're called signature loans because we don't ask for any collateral — just your signed promise to repay the loan. Choose a closed-end loan with a term of up to 60 months. Borrow for any your holiday expenses and make repayment easy with payroll distribution or automated e-Transfer.

*APR = Annual Percentage Rate. Applications are subject to credit approval, and actual rate is based on your credit. All rates are subject to change without prior notice. Rates shown are our Platinum Loan Rates. Other restrictions and discounts may apply.
** Monthly payment example: A loan of $10,000 financed for 36 months would be $30.65 x 10 = $306.50 per month; your loan will have a total cost of $11,034.00 ($306.50 x 36).
