CDs and IRAs

Save for your future with a CD or IRA

Certificate of Deposits (CDs)

The more secure investment option, CDs allow you to grow your money over a certain period of time while earning interest at a predetermined rate, typically higher than most checking accounts. A CD is FDIC-insured and requires that once money is put into an account that it is not used for a certain period of time. Our CD accounts provide great flexibility, as they are available in varying maturity periods (91 days to 5 years) and come with numerous benefits.
