Make your money work harder for you. With a certificate, you earn higher dividends for your commitment to a specific term.

EPFCU offers a variety of certificate products including Bump Up, SmartSaver, Pot of Gold, IRAs, and even Jumbo Certificates*.

Bump Up Certificates

Don’t get stuck with low earnings on your long-term certificates. Our Bump Up Term Share Certificate allows you to secure a higher dividend rate for your investments in a rising-rate environment. If our rates go up, yours can too!

With a Bump Up certificate your rate may be "bumped up” once during the term of your certificate to our higher prevailing rate for that same term.
