Credit unions are made up of members who have ownership in the overall institution.
What does this mean? Instead of earnings going into the shareholder’s pockets, they are paid back to members in the form of higher savings rates, lower loan rates and exceptional service.
Membership is open to anyone who opens a $5 minimum savings account.
Certificates of deposit are mainly offered by banks whereas Share Certificates (or certificate accounts) are offered by Credit Unions like Bethpage. Another difference is that while CDs pay interest, share certificates pay the holder dividends. Lastly is the insurance tied to each of these types of savings; a CD from a bank is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company (FDIC) while a Share Certificate from a credit union is insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA).
