Investment Options

Conservation Employees’ Credit Union understands that each member has a unique financial profile. That is why we offer a full range of products to help you save money and achieve financial success.

Certificates Of Deposit

Certificates of Deposit are popular investment tools that pay a high return on investments for a fixed period of time. At Conservation Employees’ Credit Union, we offer multiple maturity options. Members can choose from terms ranging from 3 months to 4 years, all with a minimum deposit of $500.

The credit union also offers a Children’s Certificate, which is available to any member under the age of 18. This certificate has a minimum balance of $100 and 12-month term.

Certificates of deposit feature high interest rates, which compound quarterly to increase your annual yield.

IRA and Educational Savings

Individual Retirement Accounts

At CECU, we realize that financial security for the future is something everyone must consider. Whether you are just starting to consider retirement savings, you’re unsure of how to effectively save for college, or you are getting ready to retire and need a smart way to manage your qualifying benefit income, we offer an Individual Retirement Account that fits your needs!

Traditional IRA

This account allows you to defer taxes on a portion of your income while enjoying superior interest rates. Earnings accrued on this account are not taxed until you begin to make withdrawals. Investors aged 59 ½ and up can access their funds without penalty. Investors must begin receiving periodic payments by age 70 ½.

Roth IRA

With this option, your contributions from income will not be tax-free, but you will still enjoy great interest rates. Plus, you can access your contributions tax- and penalty-free any time. Earnings are generally tax-free and may be withdrawn if the member meets specific requirements.

Education Savings Account

This account is the perfect way to save money for educational expenses. Investors will earn dividends on their contribution, and withdrawals may be made penalty-free for qualifying educational expenses.

Each of these IRA options may be managed through an IRA Savings Account, IRA Certificates of Deposit. Determining which investment method is right for you depends upon the initial deposit available and the desired interest rate for your investment. Each method is outlined below.
