Certificates of Deposit (CDs)

Looking to earn good interest on your savings? Ok with the funds being held in a protected account (no withdrawals allowed until the account’s maturity date)? That’s a CD!
 
  • Minimum deposit of just $500
  • Add-On CD option allows you to continue to deposit to the CD during its term
  • Youth CDs available with a minimum deposit of just $100 and an add-on option
  • Interest compounds quarterly
  • (Pssst… Don’t worry, your funds are always yours. You can still redeem your CD early in an emergency.1)
 

#LifeGoals

Looking to save for a down payment on a house? Your kids’ college education? The vacation of a lifetime? Add-On CDs (with an option to continue making deposits to your CD during its term) make great goal savings accounts.
 
  1. Decide when you want to hit your goal (your CD term) and how much you want to save.
  2. Use our online calculators or work with a Member Service Representative to decide how much you need to be saving each month to reach your goal in time.
  3. Set up automatic monthly transfers from your checking account to your #LifeGoals account so that you stay on track!
 

Not Your Grandma’s CD

While CDs may seem old fashioned, they’re a great option for safe, longer-term savings at a better interest rate than regular savings accounts. They also protect your funds so you’re less likely to get off track with your savings goals.

Pro Tip:

Rather than putting all your funds in one CD, choose multiple CDs and “ladder” their maturity dates. This is a great strategy for the option of accessing funds every 6 months with the higher rates of longer-term CDs.

Start by opening a 6-month CD and a 12-month CD. When the 6-month CD matures, move it to a 12-month. Now your two 12-month CDs are staggered to mature at 6 month intervals.
