A certificate is an earnings-driven savings account, similar to a CD, or Certificate of Deposit in the traditional banking world. Our Business Access Certificate offers a fixed rate that sets you up for dependable savings over a 12-month term. It only takes $25 to open and maintain your Business Access Certificate, plus you can make additional deposits over $5 any time you want.
Put aside a little, get back a lot.
With a Business Access Certificate, you’ll earn competitive rates on the smallest of deposits. You’ll also get one penalty-free withdrawal, just in case something comes up, and any and all dividends (aka interest) can be withdrawn anytime and used as you please.
Get a free pass
We understand that things don’t always go as planned, especially in business. Enjoy one penalty-free withdrawal from your 12-month certificate, no questions asked.
Dividends are always fair game
You earned them, after all. Withdraw your dividends (aka interest aka free money) any time, no penalty.
Keep the deposits coming
Boost your initial investment with an extra deposit of $5 or more, penalty-free, any time. Most traditional certificates don’t allow more than one deposit, but what can we say? We’re not like the rest.
