Amplify CD Accounts FAQ

Are share certificates from Amplify Credit Union federally insured?

Yes, your share certificates are insured up to $250,000 per share owner for each account ownership category. The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), a federal agency, administers the insurance fund and regulates federally insured credit unions. The fund is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government.

What is the difference between CDs and Share Certificates?

Certificates of Deposit (CDs) and Share Certificates are both deposit accounts where your money can grow at a fixed rate for a predetermined period of time. Both are low-risk and federally insured products designed to give you a better rate on your deposits than typical savings accounts. The main difference between them is that CDs are offered by for-profit banks, whereas Share Certificates are offered by member-owned, not-for-profit credit unions.

What types of share certificates does Amplify Credit Union offer?

Amplify CD Accounts provides the following types of share certificates.
  • Traditional share certificates. These share certificates pay a fixed interest rate if you deposit a fixed amount of money for a specific term. Once the maturity date arrives, you have the option of cashing out or automatically renewing the share certificate for another term.
  • IRA share certificates. An IRA share certificate is a type of IRA that consists entirely of share certificates. In general, you can invest in share certificates in any IRA, but Amplify CD Accounts offers a share certificate that is specifically for retirement.

What rates does Amplify Credit Union offer on its share certificates?

Amplify CD Accounts offers an APY starting at 0.55% and ranging up to 3.90%. APY stands for annual percentage yield and shows the interest rate paid by the share certificate after taking into account compounding.

What is the minimum deposit to open a share certificate account with Amplify Credit Union?

Amplify CD Accounts require a minimum deposit of $500 to open an account.

What is the grace period for Amplify CD Accounts?

Amplify CD Accounts does not specify what their grace period is. A grace period is a period of time during which you can withdraw the money in your share certificate without paying an early withdrawal penalty. A grace period starts the day after a share certificate’s maturity date, or the final day a share certificate is opened. Standard share certificates renew automatically at the same term if you don't withdraw your money after the grace period. Note that the new share certificate rates probably won’t be the same as the original.

What types of fees, such as early withdrawal penalties, does Amplify Credit Union charge?

Financial institutions don't typically charge many fees on share certificates. However, most charge a fee if you choose to withdraw your money before the term ends.

Amplify Credit Union does not charge an early withdrawal fee.

Amplify Credit Union does charge any of the fees we track.
