Time flies. And your savings soar.

When it comes to saving your money, a sure thing is hard to find. At KEMBA Financial Credit Union, your local central Ohio credit union, our Certificate accounts are an exception. If you have money sitting in a traditional savings account – and you don’t expect to access it in the near future – a Certificate, more commonly known as a CD, could be a great way to grow your money relatively hands off and risk free. Just as importantly, your funds stay within easy reach through Digital Banking, meaning you can tap into them whenever the situation calls for it.
  • Fixed rate for the entire term of traditional Certificates¹
  • Advantage members receive exclusive rate bonuses²
  • Terms range from 3 months to 7 years
  • One time rate bump available on our 24-month Rate Bump Certificate
  • In general, longer term Certificates earn higher rates
  • Minimum balance requirement of only $500³
  • Early withdrawal penalty may apply
  • Accounts automatically renew at maturity4
  • Secure savings with all deposits insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA)
  • Use KEMBA's Certificate Rates Calculator to estimate your dividend rates

Choose an option below to open a Certificate today!

Your first step is to decide on the savings period – from 3 months to 7 years, and your deposit amount; but remember, you cannot add funds to the Certificate during its term. Then sit back and watch your money grow! At its maturity, you can continue to invest it in a Certificate, or cash it out for a different option. With current interest rates, our Certificates provide some of the best rates across all our savings account products.
