Term Share Account (CDs)
Term Share Certificates (Certificates of Deposit – CDs) are accounts that offer you a secure way to invest your money for a specific term. Certificate terms range from 6 months to 36 months and require a minimum deposit of $1,000.00 to $100,000.00. Certificates typically earn higher dividends than share accounts. The interest rate is fixed until the maturity date. Once the certificate matures you have a grace period of seven calendar days. During the grace period you may deposit or withdraw funds without being charged a penalty.
NOTE: Term Shares withdrawn or closed before maturity are subject to a penalty of 90 days of interest on the amount withdrawn.
Individual Retirement Account (IRA)
The credit union offers two types of retirement accounts – Traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and ROTH IRA. These accounts are designed for retirement saving. Depending on the type of IRA you choose, your contributions may be tax-deductible and will grow tax free.
The Traditional IRA and ROTH IRA may be opened as an Accumulative IRA or Term Share Account. The Accumulative IRA is similar to a savings account and may be opened with as little as $1.00. The interest rate is variable and is based on the 6 Month Term Share rate . Deposits may be payroll deducted and additional deposits are accepted. The Term Share IRA accounts (Certificates of Deposits) require a minimum deposit to open and are subject to penalty for early withdrawal (see Term Share Account). In addition to the credit union penalty, these accounts are subject to IRS penalty. NCUA insurance for IRAs is now $250,000.
Educational IRAs are also available. Please contact the credit union for more information.
