Share Certificates

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.
