Silver Share Certificates
Minimum Balance $500 or $1,000
Not many things in life are guaranteed, especially when you’re talking about money. With a Silver Share Certificate, lock in your guaranteed dividend rate with a low minimum deposit and a term of 90 days, 6 months, 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 years. Dividends on all certificates are calculated daily and compounded quarterly and at maturity.
UIECU has a $1,000 minimum on 90-day and 6-month certificates and a $500 minimum deposit for the 1 to 5 year certificates. The penalty for early certificate withdrawals for certificates with terms less than 12 months is a 90-day dividend penalty, certificates 12 months and over have a 180-day dividend penalty.
Members under the age of 18 can save money in a Silver Share Certificate, just like adults can. The great thing is they only need half the normal minimum balance to open the account. The Smart Saver Certificate minimum balance is $500 for 90 day and 6 Month or $250 for 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 year certificates. The youth still earn the same dividend rate as a normal Silver Share Certificate but the lesser minimum balance can help them start earning sooner.
TIP: To open a membership or Smart Saver Certificate for a child, all you need is their birth certificate, original social security card, and one of the child’s guardians as a joint owner on the account. Help kids earn better dividends by helping them become Smart Savers!
