Sometimes called term share accounts, Fond du Lac Credit Union’s certificates offer higher returns for your investment than a regular savings account. When you open the certificate account, you agree to leave it on deposit for a certain amount of time. Quoted rates at the time of investment are locked in for the term of the certificate, regardless of how rates fluctuate during the period. Dividends are compounded and paid quarterly.

Never had a certificate before? Consider our one-year “balance builder” certificate especially for those who are just starting to save. Just $100 to open with a one-year term. Plus, add any amount, at any time, up to $500 during the term.

Certificate Options

  • 90-day certificate
  • 180-day certificate
  • One-year “balance builder” certificate
  • One-year certificate
  • 18-month certificate
  • Two-year certificate
  • Three-year certificate
  • Four-year certificate
  • Five-year certificate

A penalty will be imposed for early withdrawal. Early withdrawals could reduce earnings.

A renewal notice is mailed at least 10 days prior to the maturity date. If your funds are not withdrawn by the 10th day after the maturity date, your certificate will automatically renew for the same term, at the new rate as of the maturity date. You’ll receive a disclosure with account details and penalties for early withdrawal.
