More information about Share Accounts

Sound savings, money market, checking, IRA and certificate accounts are insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) up to $250,000. Additional coverage may be available based on account structure and number of owners on accounts. For more information, visit the NCUA website and this share insurance estimator tool.

Only a Savings or Certificate account can be used for a share or certificate Secured loan. IRA, Checking, and Money Market accounts cannot be used.

Unlike a regular savings account, a share certificate typically offers a higher interest rate in exchange for locking in your money for a fixed term.
