This could be the start of something great

A savings account isn't just some extra money. It's your ticket to a better future. A down payment on your dreams. A cushion against hard times.

Basic Savings Account Features

  • Deposits earn competitive dividends.
  • No monthly fees
  • Use free digital banking tools to monitor your progress and build up your balance through fund transfers

Purdue Federal Credit Union serves members worldwide and operates branches throughout Greater Lafayette, Crown Point and La Porte, Indiana.


When you open your account you are technically purchasing a share of the credit union. This account is your membership share deposit of $5. With this, you are a member-owner of the credit union and are able to participate in credit union decisions.

Great place to store the money you want to keep out of your Checking Account and be apart of PEFCU in the process! I would recommend taking advantage of the Primary Share Savings Account when you can.Read More

The Primary Savings Account is your first Savings Account at Purdue Federal Credit Union, if you're a student or new to banking and savings, it's a great place to get your first start on saving up money and earning interest on it as well. Good for general-purpose savings.Read More
