Information about NCFU 1 Year CD Interest Rates:

Like other credit unions, at the NCFU the 'savings account' product is named a 'share savings account' and a CD or certificate of deposit is sometimes called a 'share certificate'  indicating that a member's initial savings and deposit represent a kind share of ownership in the credit union.

At Navy Federal a 1 Year Bank CD product or share certificate equivalent while considered a short term investment has less liquidity than a share savings account and therefore a higher rate of return on interest. Similar to bank CD products it is also influenced by the economy and the associated monetary policies of the Federal Reserve when they raise or lower the fed fund rate.  They may be influenced net interest margins, competition for deposits, liquidity requirements, costs of funding and regulations requirements.

The interest rate indicated is for the 'Short-Term Certificate'  product and is for a 1 year term with a minimum of $100,000 deposit.


The rate of 2.50% is 1.15% higher than the average 1.35%. Also it is 0.25 % lower than the highest rate 2.75 Updated Mar, 2019
