When you join Widget Financial, your primary Savings Account is your main account. Anyone who lives, works, worships or goes to school in Erie or Crawford County can join the Credit Union by opening a Share Account with a minimum deposit of $1.00.
Savings Accounts can be established as single-name, joint, custodial, representative payee or trust accounts. As a Credit Union, we believe in giving back to our members, so our Savings Accounts earn quarterly dividends.
We also offer Special Savings accounts so you can keep funds separate from your regular Savings and Checking Accounts! Use this account to save for taxes, special projects or anything else you may need.
There are plenty of convenient ways for you to manage your Credit Union Savings Account. Deposits and withdrawals can be made at any one of our six convenient locations and at multiple ATMs in the region. Additionally, by enrolling in Online Banking you can transfer funds between your credit union accounts.

At our Credit Union, members’ shares (deposits) are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund. The NCUSIF is an arm of the National Credit Union Administration, or NCUA, which is a federal government agency. Currently, properly established share accounts in federally-insured credit unions are insured up to $250,000. In April 2006, insurance coverage on certain retirement accounts, such as IRAs and Keoghs, was raised to $250,000.
In addition to insurance through the NCUSIF, Widget Financial is one of only 13 credit unions in Pennsylvania that provides all of its members with the benefit of Excess Share Insurance. Widget Financial provides $250,000 of additional private insurance on accounts that exceed the maximum level of insurance coverage provided by the National Credit Union Administration. Therefore, members are automatically insured up to $500,000 per account at no cost.
We are proud to offer this extensive level of safety and security to each of our members. Please contact us if you have additional questions about the level to which your deposits are insured.
