What Is a Certificate Account?
A certificate, also known as a share certificate, is a form of savings account. Yet, by using a certificate, you’ll agree to keep those funds locked away until a specific maturity date. In return, you’ll receive a better APY* than most traditional savings accounts can offer.

The Benefits of a Certificate Account
There are many benefits of opening a Certificate account when you wish to make the most of your savings. Some of these benefits include:
Certificates are federally insured up to $250,000 per account. This means your cash is kept safe regardless of the market. Plus, Certificates are a safer option for those who don’t want to invest in stocks or bonds.
Due to the fixed APY on Certificates, you can expect a specific amount of yield at your maturity date. Your APY will stay the same throughout the full term of your Certificate. This also makes it easy to create a financial plan that includes Certificate accounts.
Certificates often result in a higher APY than traditional savings accounts, giving you more for your money. Plus, it’s an added reward for saving.
Will You Benefit From a Certificate Account?
Certificates aren’t the best choice for everyone. If you use your savings account frequently or make frequent withdrawals, a Certificate might not be best for you. Yet, if you have some cash you’d like to put away for a distant rainy day, a Certificate is a great choice.
As always, it’s important to discuss any financial decisions with a certified financial counselor. Our counselors can help you decide whether a Certificate is right for you and your family. Plus, due to changes in the market, it’s always best to check rates for both savings account and Certificate options.
