Do you have an extra $1,000 or more that you won’t need in the next 6 months or longer? If your answer was yes, then a certificate is a great way to earn a better guaranteed return on your money. A Scott Credit Union certificate gives you a better rate than you would get in a savings account because that money can’t be withdrawn for a set period of time.

Share certificates at Scott Credit Union are the same type of account you might hear referred to as CDs, Certificate of Deposits, non-liquid accounts, or time deposits. One reason people might gravitate to a certificate is because of the security it offers – your total deposits at Scott Credit Union (including CDs) are insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) to at least $250,000.

Find the certificate that is right for you using our rates tab and then open your account online, stop by one of our 15 convenient locations or open your account over the phone by calling our Member Service Center at 618-345-1000.
