Higher returns with peace of mind
Certificate accounts offer a stable, secure way to grow your money, especially funds you don't need access to right away. You'll earn a guaranteed rate for the term of your certificate, and you can have peace of mind knowing your principal is federally insured. In addition, certificates traditionally offer higher rates than savings or money market accounts so you can reach your savings goals faster.
Opening an account is easy! You can apply online in just a few minutes.

Here's the scoop on certificates
Certificates are like certificates of deposit (CDs), but certificates are issued by credit unions and CDs are issued by banks. If you have funds you won't be needing right away, choose a longer term certificate to maximize your earning potential. Or ask us about laddering as a strategy to keep your earning potential on track without locking up your funds in a single, long-term certificate.
