Have some money you would like to invest at a higher yield of return? Well, look no more. Call MED5 FCU for any investment questions.

Share Certificates

Share Certificates (CDs) are a secure way to invest your money at a high rate of return. Share Certificates are high yielding, no risk investments, letting you secure a competitive fixed rate of return for an extended period of time. Choose maturities from 6 months to 48 months with a minimum investment of $1,000. You have a choice to either let your dividends compound quarterly to the certificate or to withdraw your dividends penalty free. Early withdrawal will be subject to a penalty. Remember, your funds are federally insured up to $250,000 compliments of NCUA. Contact one of our officers if you are interested in calculating how your funds can be insured over $250,000.

It's Never Too Early to Start Saving

Traditional IRAs

These accounts offer a higher dividend rate than a regular savings account and require a minimum deposit of $1,000. As an investor, you have the same choices with IRA Share Certificate accounts as you do with regular Share Certificates, but have the advantage of tax deferment until withdrawn.

Roth IRAs

Roth Iras offer unique and exciting savings opportunities and they have gotten better over the years. Roth IRAs give many members an easy and safe way to plan for the future.

With a Roth IRA:

  • Contributions are allowed at any age.

  • Qualified distributions are tax-free.

  • Flexible withdrawal options are available.

  • The amount you can contribute each year is increasing.

Coverdell Education IRAs

A Coverdell Educational Savings Account (ESA) can help parents sleep at night.

Benefits Include:

  • Unlike state 529 plans, Coverdell ESAs can be used to pay for qualified elementary and secondary education expenses.

  • Earnings grow on a tax-deferred basis, and distributions are tax-free if the money is used to pay qualified education expenses.
