Bump Rate Share Certificate

Lock in a great rate now with the one–time option to bump it up to an even better rate during the term of your certificate.*Share Certificates, similar to a bank’s Certificate of Deposit (CD), offer low-risk opportunities for those USSFCU members who don’t need short-term access to their savings. Take advantage of the opportunity to earn a specific return at maturation along with the option to increase your rate once during the term of the certificate.

RATES

  • No set up or maintenance fees with a $1,000 minimum deposit
  • Eligible for a one-time rate increase during the certificate’s term without penalties**
  • Fixed dividend rates set higher than regular savings dividend rates
  • Wide range of terms available – 36, 48, and 60 months 
  • Dividend rates based on length of term and balance
  • Automatic renewal upon maturity***

*APY = Annual Percentage Yield.

**During the term of your Bump Rate Share Certificate, you are permitted to make a one-time request to adjust your dividend rate at your discretion. To adjust the rate on the Bump Rate Share Certificate, an owner of the Certificate must contact the Credit Union to request the increase. The rate of the Bump Rate Share Certificate will be adjusted on the date the Credit Union receives the request. The rate will be adjusted to the rate currently in effect for our Bump Rate Share Certificate at the time the request is made. When you elect to exercise the Bump Rate Option, the new dividend rate will be paid for the remaining term of your account. A one-time dividend rate increase will not extend the maturity date of your account. The Credit Union makes no guarantee you will be able to exercise this option since future dividend rates cannot be predicted. Early withdrawal penalties may apply if funds are accessed before the Certificate’s date of maturity. On the maturity date the Certificate balance will be renewed as a Bump Rate Share Certificate for the same term. The renewed Certificate will have the Bump Rate option. A minimum deposit of $1,000 is required to open and maintain a Bump Rate Share Certificate. You will earn dividends for every day during the period that your account equals or exceeds the minimum daily balance requirement. The APY assumes dividends will remain on deposit until maturity. The dividend period on your account begins from the date that your account is opened and ends on the maturity date, unless renewed.

***Member has 10 days from the maturity date to make changes with no penalty. The Bump Rate Share Certificates may not be pledged as collateral for shared secured loans with the Credit Union.

Members' Voice Testimonials

USSFCU puts members first and helps people. Compared to U.S. banks, which forget their humble beginnings and often behave like (they are) above the law. Credit unions seem to have maintained their purpose and USSFCU is among the best. I am proud to be a member and grateful for the service provided by USSFCU.

I've been a member for about 31 years now and I've always been able to count on the USSFCU when I've really needed them.

Excellent customer service. Staff are knowledgeable, responsive and able to provide individualized help. I live in another state and am still amazed how easy it is to use USSFCU for all my financial needs. It has always been this way and with technology solutions, it is easier than ever. But it is the personal assistance that really makes the diffe...

Been a member for a very long time. I have always been treated with kindness and expertise. Keep up the good work!

Love the phone calls regarding possible suspicious activity with my account. It's reassuring to know that everything is safe.

I would recommend the USSFCU based on the excellent customer service I have received from the Senate Credit unions I have visited (Eisenhower and GAO).

Accessibility and customer service have been exceptional. I have been a member for almost 40 years and have always been satisfied with the service and professionalism of the staff.

USSFCU cares about those who bank with it and that caring is not lip service but translates into action.

I have been with the credit union for almost 15 years and all in all am extremely pleased with the service I have gotten. Definitely better than any bank.

Very personable, solution based and takes in interest in your situation.

Unfailing service by dedicated staff. I feel that USSFCU has my back. Staff has gone to bat for me whenever needed. I'm not aware on any mistake or inconvenience in my 30 years of membership. Excellent long term leadership, continuity and service by board.

Easy to become a member and superb customer support. I dealt with two different USSFCU representatives and they were fantastic. I was able to reach them immediately or if they were tied up they contacted me as soon as they became available. They helped me open an IRA and answered any and all questions with great attitudes and professionalism. They ...

The credit union provides relatively good services and the security updates to the system are noticeable.

It took a matter of minutes to open the account and purchase a CD. The credit union that I have done business with for about 40 years took more than a week to close a joint account and transfer the funds to a new account when my husband died.

Outstanding online and mobile banking services. Professional, Courteous, knowledgeable responsive staff!
