You may make up to three withdrawals, of a minimum of $100.00 each, per month. You may also use your Money Master account for overdraft protection for your checking account.
Certificates of Deposit:
For a minimum deposit as low as $1000.00 you may earn the credit union’s highest rate of return on your funds. Certificates may be purchased for 12,18 or 24-month terms. The rate of return may be determined by the term of the certificate. As with all certificates of deposit, there are penalties for early withdrawal. Interest is compounded and paid quarterly.
