Update:

In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and adhere to social distancing, our branch lobbies are temporarily limited to appointments only. Drive-thru service is still available. To schedule an appointment, click here. We also encourage our members to utilize the Advantage Access Mobile App and Advantage Access Online Banking. You can complete almost all account actions through these services and save yourself from making a trip to a branch. If you have any questions please email callcenterteam@pacu.com or call 800-433-7228.

Use our high-value deposit and savings accounts, along with lower rate loans as stepping stones to meet your financial goals.

Basic savings accounts, Money Market accounts, Share Certificates, HSAs or IRAs. The bottom line? No matter how you choose to save, the best way to get to your goal is to add dividend returns to your steady deposits with direct deposit of your paycheck. Whether your goal is a new car, tropical cruise or rainy day cushion, Piedmont Advantage accounts offer member-owners some of the best value that can be found.
