What is a Share Certificate?
Share certificates are federally-insured investment instruments that offer a higher dividend yield compared to savings and money market accounts, but carry only a fraction of the risk associated with stocks and bonds. They earn higher dividend rates because you must leave the funds on deposit for a specified term, with no withdrawals during that term.
