Share Certificate Special

We’ve increased our Yields! 

If you have money at another financial institution, now is the time to earn more with GTE Financial. A trusted, not-for-profit credit union of more than 250,000 members, we've been proudly serving Tampa Bay since 1935! A Yield is like an interest rate you earn on. If you had $5,000 and earned an Annual Percentage Yield of 2.05%, you’d be receiving over $100 in FREE MONEY! That's what a Share Certificate is all about; it's just like a Savings, but you earn more! The longer you keep your money in a Share Certificate, the higher your Yield. You choose the duration (AKA your “term”) that you feel comfortable keeping your money in the account without a withdrawal. For example, a 12 month term. Best part is, we’ve raised all of our Share Certificate APYs during this special promotion. Click for flyer!

The most important thing to remember with a Share Certificate is that you earn more because you are agreeing to keep funds in the account, without making a withdrawal during your term. During this promotion, you can now make deposits for increments as small as $20 throughout your term, with no cap! That means, you can start off with one amount, then continue to add money to your Share Certificate if desired to earn even more.
