The Features

Deposits are insured up to $250,000 by the NCUA making them safe and secure.

We also offer Add-On CDs

Want your CD savings to grow with you? Choose a 6 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.
