APY = Annual Percentage Yield (OPEN TO READ MORE)

<sup>1</sup>The APY is accurate as of 10/26/23. The IRA 18-Month Share Certificate Account is a variable rate account and the rate may change after the account is opened. All other Share Certificate Accounts are fixed-rate accounts. A penalty may be imposed for early withdrawals. For the 15-Month Share Certificate: Minimum Opening Deposit = $0.00. A minimum of $5.00 is required to earn APY. Upon maturity, the 15-Month Share Certificate will roll over into a 12-Month Share Certificate.

You Set the Term, You Decide What Dividends You Earn.

Like a CD, a fixed-rate Share Certificate is a type of savings product that earns a set annual percentage yield (APY) rate over its entire term. This means that you, as an MCU member, can expect to earn consistent dividends for the period of time (or “term”) that you agree to keep money with us.

Can I be sure that my deposits are safe?

The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) insures MCU deposits, so you can trust that your funds are safe. The NCUA is an independent federal agency that insures deposits at federally insured credit unions, protects the members who own credit unions, and charters and regulates federal credit unions. Your savings are federally insured to at least $250,000 by the full faith and credit of the United States Government. Additionally, the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA) provides federal production to IRAs up to $1 million (some restrictions may apply depending on roll-over status and uniquely unqualified accounts).
