None of the risk and all of the reward, our Certificate of Deposit accounts let you keep your investments safe and secure while they grow.

Whether you’re starting your nest egg or saving for Junior’s tuition, a Certificate of Deposit from FAIRWINDS lets you relax and watch your savings pile up. To give you an extra boost, we’ll also make it easy to use your Relationship Rewards points to get an additional .25% or .50% on our already great rates.

The Features

Terms that Fit Your Investment Schedule — Choose an investment term from three months to five years and make your savings work on your schedule.

Safe and secure deposits — All deposits are insured up to $250,000 by the NCUA.

Relationship Rewards Points — Earn one point for each dollar you earn in interest on your CD. Redeem these points for lower rates on loans, reduced service charges, or higher rates on your next CD.

We also offer Add-On CDs

Want your CD savings to grow with you? Choose a six or 12-month Add-On CD. They can be opened with as little as $100, and allow you to make unlimited deposits to the CD throughout the term length — providing you with greater flexibility in reaching your savings goals while earning a higher interest rate.

Earn more for your savings!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Temporarily Flush Didn't know how easy it was to get an on-line CD but saw your 'flag' when accessing my checking account. A CD was easily available on-line. I and got one for a short term when some checking account cash was available so I put the small surplus to work in a six-month CD...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CD Add-on Great I love that I can keep adding to my CD and earning interest on savings previously I would've had to set aside the money and open a new CD with the add-on feature of the new 6 month and 12 month CD It's easier for me to set aside the money and be discouraged to take it out unless needed. The auto-renewal is a nice feature as well so I don't have to go to the branch if I'm not withdrawing money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from courteous service Wanted to open an IRA CD but had to open a Roth. It was explained to me that was necessary because I will be 70 1/2 years of age this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Having a CD at Fairwinds Federal Credit Union has been a real blessing when I needed capital and had nowhere else to turn to get it. The plus side is it is my own money that I am borrowing from, and that is an awesome feeling.
