Certificates are a sound and safe investment option, offering competitive earnings and a guaranteed rate of return.
Flexible terms from three months to 60 months are available, which could allow multiple options to set up ladders to meet your financial goals. Ladders are a way of dividing your investments into certificates with different maturity dates – this is usually done in equal amounts. This strategy reduces both the dividend rate and re-investment risks.
A minimum balance of $1,000 is required to open a certificate. A penalty may be imposed for early withdrawal. Fees may reduce earnings on the account.
Benefit from the safety of a certificate with added flexibility. Unlike a traditional certificate, Thrivent Federal Credit Union's Flex Certificate13 lets you react to whatever direction rates are heading. You can make any one of these choices during the first half of your certificate's term:
If rates go up – bump up the dividend rate to the current higher rate, which will increase your certificate's earning potential.
If rates go down – add at least $500, and not more than $200,000 to your higher-rate certificate (cannot exceed your initial deposit).
Withdraw – up to half of your funds without penalty (need to maintain a minimum balance of $5,000 after you request a withdrawal). The Flex Certificate is available in convenient terms of 12, 18 and 24 months.
13 You must deposit and maintain $5,000 to open the account and to obtain the disclosed Annual Percentage Yield (APY). If you choose to add a one-time deposit to the certificate, the additional deposit must be at least $500, may not be more than $200,000 and may not exceed the dollar amount of the initial deposit. You may only increase the dividend rate once during the first half of the term of the certificate. Withdrawals up to 50% of the beginning balance may only be made once during the first half of the term of the certificate following account opening. If you choose to use the withdrawal option, a balance of $5,000 must be kept in the certificate. A penalty may be assessed for early withdrawals other than the withdrawal permitted by the terms of the account contract. Fees could reduce earnings.
