A Share Certificate from Tower can help you earn higher dividends when you commit to saving for a specific period of time. Whether you have a small nest egg or a large sum to invest, it’s a secure way to grow your money risk-free.

  • Earn competitive dividend rates
  • Choose from a variety of term lengths
  • Funds are insured up to $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration*

We offer multiple Share Certificate options:

  • Limited Time Share Certificates require a minimum balance of $5,000. They are offered for terms of three months, nine months, and eighteen months for a limited time only.
  • Regular Share Certificates offer the most term length options and require the lowest initial deposit, at $500. They are offered for terms of six months, or one to five years
  • Bump-Up Share Certificates allow you to “bump up” to a higher rate once during the term if rates rise. They require a minimum deposit of $5,000 and offer terms of four and five years
  • Mini-Jumbo Share Certificates offer longer terms for greater deposit amounts. The minimum deposit is $20,000 and terms are four and five years
  • Jumbo Share Certificates offer shorter terms on large deposits. At least $100,000 must be deposited for terms ranging from 30 days to one year

We also offer IRA Share Certificate options.

If you have $2,500 or more in savings but want to be able to access your funds without penalty, you may want to consider our Money Market account.
