What is a share savings certificate and why is it a good investment?

Like a certificate of deposit offered by banks, a share savings certificate is offered by credit unions and allows you to receive a guaranteed rate of return. In exchange, you agree to keep your money in the certificate without taking a withdrawal for a specified length of time. You'll receive monthly dividends and can easily manage your certificate in Digital Banking. As rates can change at any time, locking in a share savings certificate term could be a smart financial decision!
