What is a Certificate Account?

Think of a vault where your deposited money stays safe for a specific period of time but can also earn interest while it’s protected.  With a share certificate account, you can save money for a fixed amount of time, called a term. In return for leaving your money in the account you earn a fixed interest rate—unlike traditional savings accounts, which have variable interest rates that are subject to change.

Frequently Asked Questions About Certificates

What is the difference between a Certificate of Deposit (CD) and a Share Certificate?

Certificates of deposit are mainly offered by banks whereas Share Certificates (or certificate accounts) are offered by Credit Unions like TEGFCU. Another difference is that while CDs pay interest, share certificates pay the holder dividends. Lastly is the insurance tied to each of these types of savings; a CD from a bank is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company (FDIC) while a Share Certificate from a credit union is insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).

Is There An Early Withdrawal Penalty For CDs?

We may assess an early withdrawal penalty if you withdraw funds from the principal before the CD maturity date. The penalty is applied to the amount of principal withdrawn. There’s no penalty on interest.

Are TEG Federal Credit Union CDs Insured?

Yes. TEG Federal Credit Union is a member of the NCUA so your deposits with us are insured up to $250,00.
