Do you have an extra $1,000+ that you won't need to use soon? A certificate could be the perfect way to use your money knowing you'll be earning a great interest rate. An Alliant Credit Union Certificate gives you an even better interest rate on your money than you would get in a low-rate savings account.
Certificates are often referred to as CDs, non-liquid accounts, or time deposits. A certificate is a very safe investment.
Alliant Certificates offer great dividend rates on the timetable you set as you plan for life's big moments. (If you need to withdraw your funds before the maturity date, you can do so, but you may incur an early withdrawal penalty.)
Use our different certificates to generate even more savings by creating a certificate ladder. You can learn more about certificate ladders on our blog, the Alliant Money Mentor.
The Dividend Withdrawal option lets you receive an interest payment each month rather than earning compounded interest. There is no penalty for dividend withdrawals, but they reduce earnings (because interest doesn't compound). Also, if you opt for dividend withdrawals and close a certificate before it matures, the early withdrawal penalty (normally deducted from earnings) is withdrawn from your principal instead, as earnings have already been paid to you.
Please note: In order to open a traditional IRA, Roth IRA, or SEP IRA certificate, you must open the respective account type first. Call an Alliant investments expert at 800-328-1935 to open an IRA certificate.
