If you have money that you can put away for longer periods, a Share Certificate/CD may be the way to go. Share Certificates/CDs can be secured with maturity dates starting at 3 months from date of deposit to 60 months. There is an early withdrawal penalty for all CDs, depending on term. Rates are subject to the market. Current rates can be seen here.
The minimum deposit to start a Share Certificate is $500 with the exception of the three month Share Certificate which requires a minimum balance of $5,000. Dividends are compounded and paid quarterly.
