Like A Bank CD
Owning share certificates is very much like investing into a bank CD where you are guaranteed a rate of return.
Take control of your financial future and open a Share Certificate account with Metro Credit Union. Share Certificates provide a secure and predictable
way to earn interest on savings because you know exactly how much you’ll get back. Metro Credit Union offers Share Certificate accounts for our
members with great rates. These accounts feature convenient automatic renewal at maturity, allowing you to seamlessly continue your investment.
The interest earned can be automatically reinvested back into your share certificate or mailed to you.
What’s the Difference Between a Bank CD and a Share Certificate?
A Share Certificate, not to be confused with a bank CD, is a savings account where an individual deposits a specific amount of money with a credit union for a predetermined period. This period can range from a few months to several years. Like a bank CD, in exchange for locking in the funds for that set term, you receive a fixed interest rate. However, the interest rate is generally higher than that of a standard bank CD savings account. Read more about the differences between a bank CD and a Share Certificate.
