  • We aim to make it easy to save.

    We know that when our members feel financially savvy and secure, it benefits everyone in the long run. Have questions about which certificate is right for you? Just reach out. Our highly-trained staff is always ready to help our members succeed financially.

    Savings made simple

    One of our favorite safe-and-sound savings options is the certificate. These long-term earnings-driven savings accounts come in a variety of options. Choose the term length, withdrawal allowance, and dividends that work for you and start making #moneymoves in your sleep.

    • Fixed-Rate Certificate: Higher earnings go low maintenance. Our Fixed Rate Certificate offers competitive rates and earns you quarterly dividends so you can reach your savings goals without thinking too hard about it. If you’re looking for a set-and-forget savings option you can always count on, you’ve found it.
    • Access Certificate: Like a change jar only better. Thanks to a fixed rate, our Access Certificate can earn you a lot with just a little over a 12-month term. Drop in $25 to open and maintain, and up your savings game while keeping access to your money.
    • Smart Start Certificate: A serious savings account made super easy. Patience pays off in more ways than one. If you’ve got $100 to put away for a few years, this certificate will make the wait worthwhile.
    • Choice Certificate: Lock in the freedom to bump up your rate. Our Choice Certificate offers maximum flexibility, allowing you to withdraw funds once, bump up your rates as you go, deposit additional funds, and save over either a 36- or 60-month time frame.
