If the rate on your new Jovia Certificate or IRA Certificate increases within five (5) calendar days after you open your certificate account, we’ll increase your APY to meet the new, higher rate. Your certificate will earn the higher rate from the date the higher rate went into effect until the end of the certificate’s initial term.

1 If the existing term of the certificate is no longer available, it renews to the closest term that is below the current product. If account remains inactive it may be escheated. For more information, please refer to our fee schedule.

*Annual Percentage Yield. Rates are subject to change without notice. APY measures the total amount of dividends a credit union pays on an account based on the dividend rate and the frequency of compounding. APY is expressed as an annualized rate, based on a 365-day year (366-day year in a leap year), regardless of the actual term. APY assumes all dividends remain in the certificate until maturity. Withdrawals will reduce earnings. Fees could also reduce earnings. Penalties may be imposed for early withdrawal. Penalty-free withdrawals for tuition and home purchases only. Ask for details. If the certificate rate increases within (5) five calendar days of the account opening, your certificate will earn the higher rate from the date the higher rate went into effect until the certificate’s maturity date. Only once may your rate increase. The dividend rate and annual percentage yield may increase. At renewal, your certificate will earn the rate on the day of maturity regardless of any future rate change.
