Do you have an extra $1,000+ that you won't need to use soon? A certificate is the perfect way to use your money knowing you'll be earning top dollar. An Alliant Credit Union Certificate gives you an even better interest rate on your money than you would get in a savings account because we know that the money won’t be withdrawn for an extended period.
Certificates are often referred to as CDs, non-liquid accounts, or time deposits. Almost all banks offer certificates, but with an Alliant Credit Union Certificate, you'll get a rate of return that is far above industry averages. A certificate is a very safe investment.
Alliant Certificates offer top market dividend rates on the timetable you set as you plan for life's big moments. When you open your certificate, you'll select a maturity date of 12-48 months or 60 months. 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 highly flexible 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and close a certificate before it matures, the early withdrawal penalty (normally deducted from earnings) is withdrawn from your principal instead, as earnings have already been paid to you.
