Share Certificates

Share certificates are available with a wide range of terms to fit your individual needs. Based on the term, dividends can be transferred to your share savings account, your checking account, compounded into the certificate or paid directly to you. Austin Telco Federal Credit Union's certificates offer rates that are among the most competitive in today's market.

Share certificates are similar to other long-term savings accounts, like CDs (Certificate of Deposits). However, the main difference between CDs and share certificates is that share certificates are offered by Credit Unions like Austin Telco Federal Credit Union, while CDs are offered by banks. In addition, credit unions, unlike banks, are member-owned and non-profit in nature. Credit Unions utilize their profits to offer high-quality, competitively rated options for their members, as well as better dividend earnings on the share certificates they offer.
