The number of withdrawal transactions from savings accounts are limited by federal law.
The only difference is that a supplemental savings is an additional savings account. You can name each account based on your specific financial goals — saving up for a vacation, making a large purchase, etc. — allowing you to more easily track your progress toward that goal.
Supplemental Savings Accounts can be opened in just a few easy steps in Alliant Online Banking. These accounts, dedicated to a particular financial need (emergency fund, holiday gifts, weddings, vacations, etc.), are a great way to reach your savings goals.
To optimize your savings, set up automated recurring transfers to your new account. Just select Transfer Money and indicate the account you want the money transferred from.
Please note that while there is no minimum balance required to keep your account open, you need to maintain an average daily balance of $100 to be eligible for dividends on your account.

I love the web site, very intuitive. ACH transfers are faster than any other bank. The checking account is great, never a problem (5 stars). The savings account rate is low compared to other internet banks (Incredible 1.07%, Quorum 1.05%, ELF 1%, Ally 0.99%, etc). I'm not looking for Alliant to be a rate leader but another 0.1% would at least put it back in the running where it used to be.
Was very happy with the ease of transferring funds from my account to another members account. Done with ease and didn't take long at all. Thanks !!!
We have a regular savings, checking, trust (2) and a certificate and have convinced several of our children to join. We have been members for at least 40 years. We appreciate the ability to call via (ma bell) when we have a question.
My only concern is the low interest rate on savings. Also, I know the need for new automation but we are senior citizens and can't keep up with the changes.
How about recognition for longevity including multi accounts with high balances.
I have been with the Credit Union long before they changed their name. We were told us for time and time again for years that it was a free account. Now we are charged $1.00 unless we use paperless account. In many places around the land, internet is not there, or very spotty, but we are forced to pay the fee. Yet my mail box is stuffed with United Credit Union mail, offers as they call them, yet we still must pay a fee to get a statement. Was told I have to pay for the ink to print it.
While I still like Alliant- their interest rates are no longer so great (Ally is .99% UFB is even higher).
At one time this was a nice savings choice- Now not so much
I have ben a Member Since 2000 and thay are good to me Since 2015 YA!
Getting an outside quick transfer account set up was difficult. My account was closed according to ACU. Asking to have a representative call was ignored.
As a foreign user, I appreciate the access to my account through the local ATM's in my home Country. Service by Alliant is no nonsense and every time I needed a reply, I had it really soon and to the point. If only you paid a bit more interest, you would be approaching perfection!
The Alliant cu web site is easy to use: Helpful benefits with VISA rewards!
CS Phone hold time to long?
Good interface with Quicken!
What happened to the great financial institution that once was Alliant Credit Union?
The customer representatives on almost every level and across all products can only be described as rookies, and they keep inventing new ways to tax your account. Statement fees? Are you kidding me?
Time to move on.
