Want a better rate?
Get a bonus certificate rate by using our new Premier Checking account.


Certificate investments (which are similar to CDs) are the perfect solution for savers who are looking for great returns - without the risk. Certificates offer a guaranteed rate of return, provide higher dividends than traditional savings or money market accounts and are federally-insured by the NCUA.

REALTORS® Federal Credit Union, a Division of Northwest Federal Credit Union certificates can be opened online in just minutes with as little as $1,000.  Our competitive rates beat some of the top banks!

Please note: Add-on and promotional certificates are not eligible for dividend bonus rate. Dividends are paid from current income and available earnings, after required transfers to reserves at the end of a dividend period.
