your new First South Financial Account

here's some information to help you get started

First things first. Thank you for banking with us!

We appreciate the fact that you have many choices when it comes to financial institutions, and we deeply appreciate the fact that you have chosen us to handle all of your banking needs.

Since we're a credit union, we're a not-for-profit financial cooperative that is owned by everyone who banks with us. That's why all members are required to have a saving account with a $25 minimum balance. It's what makes you a partial owner of the credit union. And since the savings account is required, there are no monthly service fees associated with this account. A one-time $10 membership fee may also apply.

Next steps for access to your account

Now that your account has been opened, there are a few things you'll need to set up in order to have full access to your account.
