Save to Invest

Looking to take a step towards investing?

Spring into the next level of savings!

Our new Springboard Savings account makes it simple to automate your savings to accumulate enough money to invest with CUSO Financial Services, L.P. (CFS)* down the road.

  • Dividends – earn dividends at the rate equal to the current 24 month share certificate rate up to $2,000; will revert to normal savings rates for balances >$2,000
  • Flexibility – save a lot or a little each month – set up automatic transfers through Online Banking, or call to have a portion of your South Carolina Federal account's direct deposit go to your Springboard Savings account
  • Education – you'll receive a newsletter with financial tips from South Carolina Federal and investing information from CFS*
  • Convenience – once your account balance reaches the $2,000 threshold, we encourage you to work with a licensed financial sales representative or CFS* investment advisor to transition into a different product

The best part is the Springboard Savings account doesn't have any monthly fees as long as you make at least one deposit each month. Here are some other features you'll need to review before opening a Springboard Savings account:

  • Must be 18 years old or older to open
  • $25 minimum to open the account
  • Limit one account per member
  • Monthly fee of $1 (waived if member makes at least one deposit in the month)
  • One withdrawal per year ($5 withdrawal fee unless moving to a different product at the direction of a South Carolina Federal licensed financial sales representative or CFS* investment advisor); second withdrawal will result in account closure
  • Withdrawals cannot be made in online banking; no transactions can be made via phone banking
