Share Certificates

A Share Certificate allows you to save money for a specified period of time, called a "term." Your money earns dividends at a guaranteed rate, which is called the Annual Percentage Yield (APY). And generally the longer the term, the more you'll earn.

With a variety of terms and competitive rates, Redstone's Share Certificates are a smart way for you to ensure your money keeps growing while you go on living.

To find out if Share Certificates are right for you, ask yourself the following questions:

How much money do you have to work with?

After the initial required balance of $1,000, the amount you put in a Regular Share Certificate is up to you. There really is a certificate for every budget, from $1,000 minimum balance for Regular Certificates all the way up to $100,000 minimum balance for Jumbo Certificates.

When do you need access to your money?

Redstone offers Share Certificate terms from 6 months to 144 months, and everything in between. If you need occasional access to your money, you may want to consider another option, like a Money Market Account. Just need access to the dividends you’ll earn? Consider selecting a Share Certificate with non-compounding dividends.

What is the difference between Compounding and Non-Compounding?

When exploring Share Certificates, you can choose how you want to receive your dividends. Do you want your dividends to be invested right back into the certificate, or will you need to access them right away?



Ideal for members who want to invest but need access to cash throughout the certificate term.

Ideal for members who want to invest and have their dividends go right back into the certificate and keep earning dividends.

Either once a month or once per quarter, the dividends you earn are removed from the certificate and deposited into your primary savings account. You will continue to earn dividends on the original amount of your certificate, but you won’t earn dividends on the dividends.

Either once a month or once per quarter, the dividends you earn are added to the principal— or total amount—of your certificate. You won’t be able to withdraw the earnings from your certificate, but your money will keep growing as your certificate matures, and you’ll be earning dividends on the dividends!

When it’s right for you:

If you need to use your certificate’s earnings for living expenses, a certificate with non-compounding dividends allows you to receive dividends periodically.

When it’s right for you:

If you don’t need access to the earnings until your certificate’s term is complete, your dividends will work even harder for you with compounding dividends.

What if my certificate’s APY goes up and I’m locked in at a lower rate?

You can save worry-free with our Member’s Choice Certificates, which offer you the potential to earn higher dividends during your certificate’s term. You can lock in a new rate any time after the first 90 days, and then once every 365 days thereafter. So if rates rise, your earnings can too.

Member’s Choice Certificates:
After 90 days from the certificate opening date, members have the option to request to change the dividend rate to the current dividend rate applicable to the term for their certificate. Future rate changes may be requested every 365 days after the last rate change on their account. Rate change must be initiated by the member, either in writing or by phone.
