SHARE CERTIFICATES VS. CERTIFICATES OF DEPOSIT
A share certificate is similar to a certificate of deposit in almost every way. In both cases, you make a deposit and agree to leave the money in the account for a fixed period of time—most often between three months and seven years. Both share certificates and certificates of deposit offer higher dividends than options like traditional savings accounts. The difference between share certificates and certificates of deposit lies in where your deposit goes, who insures it and who sets the interest rate.2
1APY = Annual Percentage Yield.
2Per the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the standard share insurance amount is $250,000 per share owner, per insured credit union, for each account ownership category.
To open a regular savings account, simply make a $5 deposit. After that, you're good to open any other type of account.
We require a $500 minimum opening deposit and balance to earn any advertised Annual Percentage Yield (APY).
You earn money on the money you have on deposit with us based on your account balance, annual percentage yield and dividend rates (also known at other financial institutions as interest) and how long you keep your money on deposit. Dividend rates are subject to change with the market. View our current rates here.
You can make as many withdrawals or transfers from your savings account as you want.
