An initial deposit of $25.00 is necessary to open the account. A balance of $25.00 must be maintained to preserve your membership.

To receive a dividend on your account, the balance must be a minimum of $100.00.
Tallahassee FCU has a number of different deposit accounts to fit every need. From simple Share (savings) Accounts to Club Accounts and Certificate of Deposit Accounts (CD's).
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We many also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
Deposits are insured by CUNA's general share insurance rules up to $250,000.
Regular Share/Savings Accounts
A regular share/savings account is opened by you when you join the credit union. Your savings are called "shares" because they represent shares of ownership.
Share Certificates/Certificate of Deposits
Share Certificates can be opened for a fixed term rate. Maturities are available to match your savings needs. Ask to speak to our Certificate Representative for current terms and yields.
For Christmas? - If you need help with Santa, Tallahassee FCU can help with an account designed just for him.

Line of Credit
Tired of the hassles of applying for a loan every time you need extra cash? With your excellent credit you may qualify for our best rates on an unsecured loan. Once approved, all it takes is a phone call to get your Cash in a flash!
Signature, Christmas, Vacation Loans
Based on your monthly income and your credit, you are available to receive loans on your signature only. Loan interest rates are reviewed monthly to ensure they are competitively priced. You can apply over the phone (850-222-1421) or drop by the office. Then simply make a quick stop by our office to sign loan documents and to pick up your check. Or, if applying and you are currently out of the area, loan documents will be mailed to you for final processing. It's that easy! And with the convenience of payroll deduction, you don't have to worry about mailing your monthly payment.
New and Used Car Loans
If you have been thinking of buying a new car, but hate the hassle, call your Credit Union first. We can offer very competitive rates and in many instances can pre-approve the loan before you decide on the vehicle. Shopping for a new car loan doesn't have to be a hassle. Be aware of the options available to you. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
We offer Manufacturers' extended warranties on all new or used vehicles. These warranties will be insured through our National Credit Union Association (CUNA) and cost much less than the warranties sold by the auto dealers. They protect you from expensive auto repairs after your original warranty ends. You will be able to purchase a warranty on a new or used purchase or add it to a vehicle that you already own when this service is available.
Gap Insurance is also available at a very affordable price. This product protects you in the event of an auto accident resulting in a balance due on the loan after your insurance has paid the claim.
With both our Extended Warranty and Gap Insurance products, you will receive a large reward for a small price!
Other Loan Types
Loans for boats, trailers, lawn equipment and other recreational items are also available. Interest rates are usually lower than rates on signature loans when you use your purchase as collateral. The following purchases qualify:
- motor homes
- boats/jet skis
- travel trailers/campers
First Mortgages, Second Mortgages, Land Loans, Home Equity, Home Improvement Loans
Buying a new home or refinancing your present home? Thinking of remodeling your home? Come see us about a new First Mortgage, home equity or home improvement loan.

We can finance up to 90% of your home's value depending on your credit and the balance of your loan (some restrictions apply). Click here for detail information.

through your credit union!
