Certificates of Deposit
No matter what your future goals are, Georgia United Credit Union has additional options to best suite your long term savings and retirement needs. Georgia United offers several Certificate of Deposits (CD) options to choose from:
- 3 month terms
- 6 month terms
- 12 month terms
- 24 month terms
- 36 month terms
- 60 month terms
- All CD terms are fixed for the duration of the term you select
- CD’s pay higher dividends than regular Share Savings Accounts
With Certificates of Deposit, you can also secure a loan at a considerably lower rate. Interest disbursement options include compounding or transferring your quarterly dividends to your savings account for immediate access when you need it. Minimum opening deposit of $1,000 is required for all Certificates.
See below for additional information on our CD's:
- Funds cannot be withdrawn from the account without penalty until the scheduled maturity date (unless special circumstances arise; see next bullet point for clarification).
- No withdrawals allowed unless it is in the case of death of the primary or joint on the certificate. The certificate may then be closed before maturity without a penalty.
- Maturity/renewal notices are provided.
- Automatic renewal into the same term will be at the rate in effect at maturity. A seven day grace period after maturity gives members the option of changing their investment plan or adding additional monies to the Certificate.
- Certificates can be used as collateral for loans.
- Dividends may be reinvested, deposited to another account, or paid out in a check.
- Rates are published weekly (effective dates are listed on the rate sheet).
- Deposits can be made to Certificates only at the time of maturity.
- The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) insures your deposits (in savings, savings certificates, and share-draft/checking accounts) up to $250,000. IRA’s are insured separately to $250,000.
