Investing your money can be a great way to see your funds grow and save for the future. Simply by holding a share account at a credit union, your accounts are earning dividends, based on the credit union’s rates. Cedar Point Federal Credit Union has a variety of share investment opportunities, which you can read about below.

IRA  & ESA Share* Account

What is an IRA?

An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is an excellent tool for retirement savings. Unlike most investments, depending on the type of IRA you choose, contributions may be tax-deductible and will grow either tax-deferred or tax-free. Cedar Point Federal Credit Union offers both traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs. Please contact a member service representative for more information.

What is an ESA?

A Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA), formerly referred to as an Education IRA, is a great way for parents, grandparents and others to help meet the rising costs of a student's education. Income limitations apply. Consult your tax advisor for more information on how IRAs can affect your taxes.

Certificate Accounts**

What is a Certificate?

A certificate account is different from a traditional savings account in several ways. Savings accounts allow members to deposit and withdraw funds relatively freely. But with our certificates, members put money in the account for a set period of time, during which they can’t access the funds without paying a penalty.

We offer certificate terms from three months to 60 months. The minimum deposit for a certificate account is $1,000.00. A penalty* will be charged for early withdrawal of certificate accounts. Rates are fixed for the entire term of the certificate account and funds cannot be deposited into existing accounts until maturity.

*Early withdrawal penalty: 90 days dividends for certificate terms of 13 months or less; 180 days dividends for terms of 24 months; 270 days dividends for terms of 36 months; 365 days dividends for terms of 48 months; and 455 days dividends for terms of 60 months

**Please note that Certificate Accounts are offered through Cedar Point Federal Credit Union and not through Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company or Hornor, Townsend and Kent, LLC (HTK).
