Bannockburn, IL. (June 22, 2022) - Great Lakes Credit Union (GLCU) is expanding its range of deposit offerings with the introduction of two products that can help members grow their savings more quickly: Jumbo and Super Jumbo Certificates. Federally insured by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) up to $250,000, these certificates provide a low-risk way for members to earn a higher return on their funds and multiply their savings in a predictable way.

In today's volatile rate environment, that stable growth is important to consumers across the financial spectrum, and GLCU is responding to their concerns.

 

"GLCU's new Jumbo and Super Jumbo Certificates complement our existing suite of financial solutions by providing high-net-worth members with deposit products that can significantly help them achieve their savings goals," said Steven Bugg, President and CEO of GLCU.

With a Jumbo or Super Jumbo Certificate, individuals enjoy a higher annual percentage yield (APY) on their funds, meaning they earn a higher dividend rate on the balance than they would with most regular savings accounts. Generally, the longer the term of the certificate, the higher the APY a person will receive.

Compared to a traditional certificate, Jumbo and Super Jumbo Certificates require a larger balance to open as they offer a higher return on funds. Once the certificate matures, the account holder can withdraw the money without penalty and either collect the dividends earned or reinvest.

GLCU's newly added certificates offer competitive dividend rates as well as flexible terms for members, ranging from 12 to 60 months. The credit union's 60-month Jumbo Certificate offers 1.05% APY* while its 60-month Super Jumbo Certificate offers 1.20% APY*.

The new certificates are available to existing members, but consumers who are not yet members of GLCU can join and take advantage of the competitive dividend rates.

For those saving for future goals, a Jumbo or Super Jumbo Certificate can be an attractive option that can provide peace of mind, especially through current economic climate changes.
