Share Certificates

#1 RATE IN THE NATION!!

At 3.53% APY, our 5-year $60K+ Share Certificate was ranked the top rate in the entire nation by S&P Global Ratings and DepositAccounts.com as of 08/14/2018. 

"When compared to the other similar length-of-term CDs tracked by DepositAccounts.com that are nationally available, all of United States Senate Federal Credit Union's 60-month Share Certificate APY tiers currently rank in the top three, regardless of minimum deposits."

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. By opening an NCUA insured Share Certificate with USSFCU, members can be assured of a specific return upon the maturation of their Share Certificate term. USSFCU offers a variety of share certificate options, each with a unique term and interest rate. Below is the list of all USSFCU Share Certificate terms, account types and rates.
