Access account packages will be available for legacy Casera members starting on February 1, 2024

As Casera Credit Union legally merged with Access Credit Union on July 1, 2023, we are progressing through the next phase of the merger with our product alignment.

On February 1, 2024, all Access Credit Union account packages will be available for legacy Casera Credit Union members. That means your current Casera account package will change automatically to an equivalent Access product and Access service fees will come into effect.


Account packages

We encourage all members to review the account package details to be aware of any changes your account may incur during this transition.

Not sure what account type you have today? You can find this information by viewing your online or mobile banking or account statement.









If the product your account is aligned to does not suit your needs; review the above grids to find a more suitable option, and speak to your branch to make the change after February 1, 2024.

High Yield Savings

Due to technical constraints, we cannot migrate the current High Yield savings accounts into the Platinum Savings product, which is more closely aligned in offer. This is due to challenges with interest calculations and accruement. To ensure members do not miss any interest payments, these accounts have been mapped into the closest compatible product, which is the Premium savings account.

After February 1, 2024, members can open and transfer funds into a Platinum Savings to benefit from the highest available interest rate. Casera branches can assist you with this process.

Interest Payments 

After February 1st, variable registered products will pay out interest at the end of June and December (current cycle at Casera is March and September). No accrued interest will be lost because of this change.

Variable TFSA accounts will change to semi-annual interest payments (current cycle is monthly).

All Casera terms operate in a similar fashion to Access in which terms are opened in six month increments to a maximum of five years.

However, term products may not appear on your first few Access statements after technical alignment. More details to follow.
