ADD-ON CERTIFICATES FAQs

  • Our Money Builder Add-On Certificate is unique because it has a low opening balance of $25 and it allows you to make unlimited additional $25+ deposits after opening. These features can help you grow your balance over time through compound dividends.

  • If you withdraw funds before maturity, you’ll pay no fee but you’ll forfeit the dividends you would have earned.

  • Certificates and regular savings accounts differ in several ways. Certificates lock up your money for a set time, but they guarantee a fixed rate for dividends over the full term. Regular savings accounts have no term limit, and dividend rates can vary.

  • Certificates often pay much higher dividends than regular savings accounts, which can help your balance increase faster over time. This is because a certificate earns dividends at guaranteed rates and the balance can build through compounding. Check our deposit account rates to learn more.

  • A credit union share certificate (certificate) and a bank certificate of deposit (CD) both represent time deposits with fixed terms and dividend rates, but the key distinction lies in their institutional affiliation. A credit union share certificate is offered by a credit union where the member-owner earns a dividend on their investment, while a bank CD is provided by a traditional bank for their customers.
