Where Does My Money Go?

Have you ever wondered what happens to the money you deposit into your share savings account?  The credit union sends your money along with the money they have received from other members to a depository bank where they have an account.  A depository bank is a place where credit union keep their extra money until they need it.  Their money earns interest just like your money earns interest.  Your credit union always keeps enough cash in reserve in case you want to withdraw your money   -    for example, to buy the bike you've been saving for.
