State Employees Credit Union CD Rates

Credit unions are not-for-profit, and exist to provide a safe, convenient place for members to make deposits and obtain loans at reasonable rates. But unlike banks, credit unions are not in business to make profits. Credit Unions allow its members’ to combine their money and resources in order to make loans to each other when in need. Following this principle of Not for Profit, But for People – State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) was founded in 1937 with 17 members with $437 in assets. It has grown to 1.2 million members with more than $12 billion in assets and 179 branches as in 2004.

In addition to its various other services, it offers its members the opportunity to earn interest on their savings with Share Term Certificates also known as CD or certificate of Deposit. The minimum opening balance is $250. Your savings having a maturity period between 6 months to 60 months give you an opportunity to earn a good rate of interest.

– If you lock in your funds for 6 months it would have an interest rate* of 4.25% with an APY of 4.25%.

Interest will be accrued daily but not compounded. There will be no service charge for monthly transfer of earned interest to another deposit account.

Incase of early cancellation, interest of 90 days or all earned interest, whichever is less will be charged as fees.

    Hiya! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4.

    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be
    able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Thanks!
