Youth Certificates

Youth Certificates are available as a secure way to save money for a set time and earn a higher dividend than a regular savings.

  • $10,000 maximum aggregate
  • 1-year term
  • Savings are federally insured
  • Dividends are calculated daily and paid quarterly
  • e-Statements available

A certificate of maturity notice will be mailed or an e-Notice sent to the member at least 30 days prior to the cetificate maturity.
