Choose Your Term and Start Saving
A Term Share Certificates (TSC) is an account offered by credit unions which is similar to a Certificate of Deposit (CD) you might find at a bank. A TSC pays higher interest rates over a fixed period of time, known as a term, for a guaranteed return. When you place funds you don’t immediately need into a TSC you can earn higher dividends without daily management or fees. This is a low-risk way to maximize your savings because deposits made with ACCU are federally insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF) and American Share Insurance.
ACCU’s TSCs feature a high rate of return with terms ranging from 90 days – 60 months. It is a safe way to grow your savings with a return you can count on. Plus, you can spend the time you would have spent watching the stock market with your family because you can rest assured that your return will not change as the market fluctuates.
