Begin saving now for your future, with a share certificate account.
With higher dividend rates than a regular savings or money market account, West Coast Federal Credit Union has terms to fit your financial needs. Select a certificate term from 6, 12, 24, 36 or 48 months with a minimum balance of $500. Check out our current rates on our “Rates and Fees” page.
The Certificate may not be pledged, transferred or assigned to any party other than the Credit Union. It may be pledged as collateral on a share secured loan at this Credit Union.
Dividends are compounded at maturity and may be paid to the principal or paid to the regular share account at maturity.
Dividends are based on Credit Union earnings at the end of a dividend period and cannot be guaranteed. The Credit Union will make every effort to pay the dividend rate quoted on the share certificate for the duration of the certificate. There will also be every effort to maintain the highest return on investment possible, beneficial to both the owner(s) and the Credit Union.
IRAs are one of the best savings tools available today. More people than ever before are now eligible to take advantage of the incredible tax advantages available through IRAs.
Recent legislation brought about sweeping changes related to retirement and other savings arrangements. The benefits of the changes include:
- increased contribution limits
- catch-up contributions for individuals who attain age 50 before the end of the taxable year
- increased portability of assets between various plan types
- changes to rollover rules
At the heart of what makes IRAs such a great savings tool are the special federal tax laws governing the taxation of amounts earned within an IRA. Earnings within Traditional IRAs are generally not taxed until they are distributed from the Traditional IRA. Earnings within Roth and Education IRAs, now known as Coverdell Education Savings Accounts, are generally not even subject to federal taxes. What’s more, contributions to Traditional IRAs are tax deductible for many taxpayers. Over time, these special tax features can result in significantly larger IRA savings accumulations than what can be accomplished in ordinary savings tools.
