IRA Share Certificates

With an IRA Share Certificate, you can lock in the rates of a Certificate which are the benefits of an IRA. Therefore, you receive high yields, paid monthly, while your earnings are tax-deferred until you begin making withdrawals.

Share certificates are a secure way to grow your money.

Community Resource offers Share certificates which are similar to a bank certificate of deposit (CDs) except they are exclusively offered by credit unions. Share certificates are low-risk, and can be opened for as little as $25.

With a Share Certificate Account you can watch your money grow! You can choose from a variety of terms and rates to fit your financial plan. A Share Certificate account generally earns a higher rate of return than our regular savings and money market accounts.

A share certificate is a safer and more conservative investment than stocks and bonds, offering lower opportunity for growth, but with a guaranteed rate of return.

Savings rates are variable and are subject to change at the discretion of the Board of Directors. Annual percentage yields are based on the reinvestment of principal and interest for one full year. Dividends are compounded and paid monthly. A penalty will be imposed for early withdrawal on certificates including IRA Certificates. Minimum to open and obtain APY for these Share Certificates is $500. Fees may reduce earnings. Certificate Renewal Policy: Share Certificates automatically renew at the time of maturity. CRFCU will provide 30 days notice prior to the maturity date. If you do not contact CRFCU on or before the maturity date, the account will renew with the following terms, at the rate current at the time of renewal. For certificates with maturities of greater than 90 days, you will have a 7-day grace period after the maturity date to withdraw the funds in the account without being charged an early withdrawal penalty.
