Diamond Dividend Checking

Interest bearing checking PLUS with ConnectPLUS you get FREE checks for life! With an interest-bearing checking account, Bridge pays you interest on the money in your account, much like it pays interest on a savings account. However, with a checking account you can also write checks or use debit cards, making it easy to access your money as needed for bills, purchases and more.

Money Market

Money market accounts are a popular option for people looking to save money. These accounts offer members the convenience of online banking and the advantage of competitive interest rates. The funds are insured up to $500,000. You have access to your funds, which means your money isn’t tied up the way it is in other types of accounts, such as CDs. The interest rate you get for a money market account is higher than a traditional savings account. Unlike regular savings accounts, Bridge’s money market provides you with the ability to easily access your money. This provides added flexibility should you ever need money from that account.

First Mortgage

Empty nest? Perfect time to evaluate your nest needs. Empty nesters should look at two options when exploring ways to reduce loan liabilities.

  1. Benefits of shortening your mortgage term with a first mortgage refinance: in most cases you’ll lower your interest rate, pay interest for fewer years and own your home free & clear sooner.
  2. Benefits to downsizing your empty nest. If you downsize to a condo or a newer home you’ll be spending less on maintenance & utility costs, lower property taxes, increased savings, increased freedom now that you don’t have a larger house to maintain and most importantly, less stress, less clutter, less debt and fewer financial/maintenance obligations.


Home Equity Line of Credit

The ability to access home equity can save someone from running short of money or being forced to sell stocks, bonds and other investments. Which helps improve cash flow. A Home Equity Line of Credit can help pay for that travel adventure you’ve always wanted to take, help children with college, a wedding, or help you remodel that empty nest– plus the potential tax benefit when paying on your home equity loan.
