Certificate Accounts

Certificate Hero Inside

A good investment for extra cash over and above your daily needs.

All our certificate accounts are fully insured by the federal government, typically offering better annual percentage yields than basic savings or money market accounts, and requiring a commitment as short as 3 months for a fixed-rate certificate. Certificates offer safety of principal in a falling rate environment, which makes them a safe, secure investment vehicle.
