Step-Rate Share Certificate

Our Step-Rate Share Certificate offers members the flexibility to change their rate one time during the 24 month term to match our regular 24 month share certificate’s rate. For example, if our Step-Rate APY is 4.00% and our 24 month share certificate increases to a 4.35% APY, you can notify us you want to match the new 24 month rate. Your Step-Rate share certificate will earn 4.35% APY from that date until maturity.*

* Minimum balance is $1,000.00, other restrictions may apply.
