Our Investment Account Options

Investing Made Simple and Reliable

The mission of The District Credit Union is to help our members secure their financial future, and making investing easy and rewarding is a critical piece. Read on to learn about the investment options available to you.

Money Market Accounts

Our Money Market Accounts are available in four tiers, allowing you to invest at a level with which you feel comfortable (see table below). Dividends are paid monthly, and you are given six preauthorized drafts per month, making these investment accounts an especially flexible means of increasing your earning potential. You may make deposits into these accounts as often as you wish, with the confidence that your funds are federally insured to at least $250,000.00, backed by the full faith and credit of the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). These accounts do not have a maturity date.

Withdrawals and Minimum Balance – The maximum withdrawal limit is three per month without a service charge. A withdrawal is considered any cash withdrawal, transfer of funds, or issuance of a check either by telephone or in-person. A $10.00 fee will be incurred for any withdrawal over three (to be posted at the end of each month). If your Money Market balance falls below $1,000.00, the rate will revert to the Regular Shares interest rate of 0.05%.

Share Certificate Accounts

Our term-based Share Certificate Accounts pay higher dividends for a fixed period of time. With terms ranging from 3 months to 5 years and a low minimum opening balance of $500, this account is perfect for members who want to earn more dividends and don’t need immediate access to their funds. You may also build your savings with one of our Add-on Certificates, starting at as little as $100. Whether you are saving for something special or just want to earn higher rates, these accounts allow you to lock in a competitive rate and start saving today.
