Message From MECU Bump-Up CD

Lock in higher yields now. Raise your rate later. A MECU Bump-Up CD puts you in the driver's seat by allowing you to step up to a higher rate once or twice during your CD's term. With most CDs, the rate you start with is the one you finish with. But that's not the case with a Bump-Up CD. These unique investments allow you to take advantage of rising interest rates. You can choose to bump up your rate twice on a 48- or 60- month certificate and once on a 24- or 36-month CD. Banking with MECU Credit Union in Maryland means belonging to a local financial institution that invests in the Baltimore community and offers competitive rates on CDs and other savings accounts.
