What is a Savings Certificate?
A Savings Certificate account provides a higher interest rate than a traditional savings account, enabling your savings to earn more for you.
That’s because unlike a traditional savings account – which allows you to deposit and withdraw funds freely – a savings certificate comes with an agreement that you won’t withdraw funds for a set term, typically anywhere from months to years.
The longer the term, the higher your interest yield.
What’s the difference between a Savings Certificate and a CD?
