What Is a Share Certificate?

A share certificate is a specialized type of savings account offered by credit unions. It allows the account holder to earn a higher interest rate or dividend compared to regular savings accounts. However, account holder must agree to not withdraw the deposited funds for a certain period of time. If the holder withdraws the money earlier than the agreed-upon period, they might be subjected to a penalty. 

Features:

  • Terms up to 5 years
  • Fixed rate of return
  • Federally insured

If you have many accounts, use the Share Insurance Estimator to help determine how you can structure them to remain under NCUA insurance.
