Message From The Pennsylvania State Employees Credit Union

PSECU offers its members a safe and easy way to invest their money. Whether you are looking for a short or long-term investment, PSECU has a certificate that will work toward helping you reach your financial goals. 

A credit union certificate is the equivalent of a bank Certificate of Deposit (CD). It’s a smart option if you don’t need instant access to your money and want to earn higher dividends (interest) on your money than you can with a savings account. A certificate’s guaranteed rate of return makes it easier to estimate your money’s growth. Your certificates are federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) up to a $250,000. Open with as little as $500. You’ll accrue dividends for a set period of time, or “term.” When your term is up, you can withdraw your money and earnings. Otherwise, you can renew your certificate at current rates.
