Rainy Day Club

Rainy Day Club Account

Experts suggest we establish an "emergency fund" equal to between three and six months of your income - just in case.

Our Rainy Day Club Account makes it easy to set money aside, thanks to automatic transfers from your Rio Grande Credit Union Checking Account and payroll deductions. Setting a little money aside every month means you don’t have to pay out of pocket the next time a rainy day comes along.
