A share certificate is referred to in banking terms as a CD or Certificate of Deposit. A share certificate is an investment account that earns a higher dividend rate than a regular savings account for a fixed time. Share certificates are ideal for members who want to maximize earnings for a specified period. Meadowland Credit Union's rates are competitive with other area financial institutions, and vary according to the length and term of the certificate. Terms also can vary from as little as 3 months or as long as 5 years.
Share certificates are the perfect no-risk investment you can use to save for your future retirement, school, or for the additional income you need today. You can also time a share certificate's maturity to coincide with a vacation, due date for tuition payments, a home improvement project, or the purchase of a second home.
