What do I need to know about a Growth Certificate? To open a 9-month Growth Certificate, you must have $25 auto-transferred into your certificate each month. There is a $500 minimum balance to start. And you can deposit more money into your certificate whenever you want, however much you want during the month.
Can I add money to my certificate anytime? Yes, with a Fluid Certificate or a Growth Certificate, you can add money to your certificate during the month at any time.
How often can I withdraw from the 7-month Fluid Certificate? How often can I make deposits? You can withdraw monthly and make unlimited deposits.
What is the minimum to open a certificate? Most of our certificates can be opened for $500, except for a Starter Certificate, which costs just $50, and the 7-month Fluid Certificate, which costs $10,000.
Do any of the certificates bump rates? Yes, we have this feature on our 18-month certificate.
Are there any penalties for early withdrawal on certificates? Yes, If funds are withdrawn from the certificate before it reaches its term, some dividends will be forfeited. (6-12-month certificates lose 2 months of dividends, and 18-36-month certificates lose 6 months of dividends) 
What happens after my Starter Certificate reaches $500? It will be rolled over to a 12-month Certificate.
Do I need to make a deposit each month in my Starter Certificate? Yes, you need to commit to at least a $25 per month deposit.
How does a Fluid Certificate work? Fluid Certificates are for terms of 7 months and require a minimum opening deposit of $10,000. You can add money to the Fluid Certificate at any time. One withdrawal can be made each month without a penalty as long as the balance remains above $10,000.
What happens if I withdraw money from a Certificate before it matures? If you withdraw the money from a Certificate before it matures, you'll never lose the principal that you have invested. There might be dividend penalties for the early withdrawal. If you think you'll need to withdraw money from the Certificate, consider a Fluid Certificate. As long as your balance remains over $10,000, you can make one penalty-free withdrawal per month.
