Certificates

We offer a variety of certificates ranging from 91 days up to 60 months. All certificates require a minimum deposit of $1000.00 to open, and have a penalty for early withdrawal. Our rates are very competitive and are usually a little higher than the banks. The rate is fixed for the term of the certificate and dividends are compounded and paid quarterly. It is easy to apply, just email us or call and we will open your certificate. The certificate automatically renews at maturity.

Add-on Certificates

Available for 60 and 84 month certificates only. Minimum add-on is $25 which must be made by automatic bi-weekly allotments.  The rate is fixed for the term of the certificate and dividends are compounded and paid quarterly.  This is a non-renewing certificate.  At maturity, the funds will transfer to your regular share account. 

IRA

Individual Retirement Accounts are used for just that, retirement accounts. We offer Traditional and Roth IRAs. The minimum deposit to start an IRA is $100.00. You can set up automatic deposits or make deposits into the IRA account at the credit union. 

We also offer:
IRA Certificates with terms starting at 12 months up to 60 months. For certificates, you need a minimum deposit of $1000.00 or more. Dividends are paid quarterly and there is a penalty for early withdrawal.

Types of IRAs available at your credit union:

TRADITIONAL IRA — The classic way to save for retirement. Best for those who expect to be in a lower tax bracket after retirement, or don’t qualify for a ROTH due to their income level.

  • Has tax advantages now, with potential tax-deductible contributions.
  • Tax-deferred — it’s not taxed until you withdraw the funds.
  • You must be under age 70½ and have enough earned income to equal the contribution.

ROTH IRA — A IRA with more flexibility when you withdraw the money. Best for those who expect to be either in the same tax bracket or higher after retirement — and who meet the lower income limits of a ROTH.

  • Has tax advantages at retirement.
  • Your contributions are not tax-deductible.
  • No maximum age restrictions for contribution eligibility. You may be able to contribute after you reach age 70½.

* Effective January 1, 2015-Before 2015, IRA owners were allowed to do one IRA-to-IRA rollover per IRA that they owned. Now it's one and done--only one IRA rollover per 12-months per IRA owner, regardless of the number of or types of IRAs the individual owns.

Special Purpose Accounts

Holiday accounts and special purpose accounts are really helpful when you want to place funds apart from your regular savings account. The holiday account requires a minimum deposit of $1.00 and may be opened only from November through February. The holiday account also has restrictions for withdrawals. You are allowed only one withdrawal per year. Funds are deposited into your savings account at the beginning of November.

The special purpose account has a minimum deposit of $5.00. This is just like having a second primary account. Some of the uses for this account would be for taxes (of any kind), saving for college, or even a wedding. 

Regulation D transfer limits apply.
