CDs

Term CD Accounts
UFCU certificates of deposit offer you attractive yields that are guaranteed. And you can establish a maturity schedule to fit your needs.  Certificates are available with terms from 3 months to 48 months. Minimum certificate amounts are $1,000. Higher yields are available for amounts over $10,000 and $75,000 (Jumbos). So, if you’re tired of stock market volatility, consider certificates of deposit

Certificate Laddering
Certificate laddering is a smart way to earn more on your invested funds.  It works like this. Through convenient, regular payroll deductions you’ve accumulated a substantial amount in your regular savings account. You want to earn higher rates. Establish a ladder of certificates that mature in one, two, three and four years. One year later, the first certificate matures with interest. If you don’t need the money, reinvest in a new four-year certificate, at the higher dividend rate. Next year, your two-year certificate matures with interest. Again, if you don’t need the money, reinvest in another four-year certificate at the higher dividend rate. By the end of the fourth year, all your investments will be earning at the higher four-year certificate rates. Laddering gives you higher earnings and the flexibility of access to your funds if you need them. Spreading the maturities over four years is just one way. The ladder also works over shorter periods, say six months, one year, eighteen months and two years.

IRAs

Traditional IRA and Roth IRA accounts are programs designed to help you save for retirement.  A Traditional IRA is funded with pre-tax money and may be tax-deductible on your current Federal Income Tax Return. A Roth IRA is funded with your after-tax money, and your annual deposits are not tax deductible. The Credit Union offers both savings and term accounts for Traditional IRAs.  Roth IRAs are term accounts only.
