A UGEFCU Savings Account can help you meet your savings goal and create a cash reserve to help you prepare for the future. Your money grows safely—building dividends—until you need it. We also offer accounts for planned expenses like vacations, education, holidays, taxes and gifts.
A Money Market is one of the best savings accounts for accumulating your emergency reserves or for parking money you plan to invest later. It allows you to maintain a higher account balance, earn more dividends, and still have access to your money. Money market account funds are federally insured by NCUA and you can start yours today with as little as $2,500.00.
Certificate Of Deposit
A Certificate of Deposit is a term deposit. You deposit the money for a set period of time, usually between six months and three years, and in return, you receive a higher interest rate than a traditional savings account. It's a simple way to boost your savings and prepare for your financial future.

So, if you know you won't need the money for a year, you will make more money by depositing in a certificate. But remember, you are promising to keep the money in the certificate for the term you choose.
With a savings account, you can add money to it whenever you want but you cannot add money to a certificate until it matures. If you deposit your money in a certificate there will be an interest penalty if you withdraw it before the maturity date.
