Our share certificate rates are set each Tuesday. You can obtain these rates through the  Online Banking portal by selecting Accounts > Investments > Deposit Rates; by calling our Member Contact Center at (800) 226-6673; or by visiting your nearest branch.

The six-month certificate requires a $500 minimum balance to open. The one-year through five-year certificates require a $1,000 minimum to open. We also offer Jumbo Certificates with a minimum balance of $100,000.

If your certificate has a term of one year or less, there will be a penalty of 31 days of interest on the amount withdrawn. If your certificate has a term longer than one year, the penalty will be 90 days of interest on the amount withdrawn.
