CDs & IRAs
Certificates of Deposit (CDs)
It's always a wise investment when you choose one of our Certificates of Deposit. If you can leave your savings alone for a specific period of time, a Certificate of Deposit (CD) could be the right choice for you. They pay competitive rates and are easy to set up.
- All certificates can be opened with just $500 (only $250 for minors)
- Offered at terms from 3 to 60 months
- Interest compounds daily and is posted monthly to your certificate or savings account

Individual Retirement Accounts
Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are great tools to help you stockpile your money, all the while earning great dividends. We offer both Traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs. Certificates of Deposit IRAs can be opened with just $500 with terms 12-60 months
- yeah baby! Savings account IRAs are also available with our IRA Saver product. You may deposit funds at any time, up to the IRS limits. No minimum balance required.
With a Traditional IRA, deposits, or contributions, are tax-deductible. So you pay less income tax in the year contributions are made. Your earnings always grow tax-deferred which means taxes are only paid when the money is withdrawn from the IRA.
With a Roth IRA, contributions are nondeductible and taxed in the year they are earned. The Roth IRA features tax-free withdrawals for certain distribution reasons after a five-year holding period.
