Greenwood Credit Union offers multiple CD options with the highest earning potential coming from our 5 year certificate of deposit at a 1% APY with a minimum deposit of $1000.
Greenwood Credit Union CD Options:
Greenwood Credit Union has several CD options depending on how many years and what rate you would like. Our second best option is our 4 year certificate of deposit with a .75% APY.
3 years still get a good yield of .70% with a shorter limit. Our shortest option is 3 months at .30% APY.
We consider a certificate of deposit an excellent way of having an almost no risk investment, especially if you don’t need your cash back right away. While playing the stock market can yield higher ratings, it does so with the risk that a CD simply doesn’t have. You can also choose to extend your certificate of deposit and continue earning. There is a penalty for removing your deposit early, though it is possible.Certificates of deposit are also a great way of teaching students good investing habits.
The first step to opening a certificate of deposit with Greenwood Credit Union is to become part of our family. Sign up to become a member and we will open a checking or savings account for you. The next step is a certificate of deposit. You’ll need that checking or savings account to deposit the interest earned from your CD.
Greenwood Credit Union offers a primary location in Warwick, Rhode Island, though the entire GCU network is connected by thousands of Credit Unions in a Co-Op program.
