- What's the Deal?
Credit unions call their certificates "share certificates" instead of "certificates of deposit" or "CDs." What's the deal with that?
This is because our members are part owners, not just customers. So certificates at Capital Credit Union can be seen as "shares" in our company. This is also why we pay "dividends" instead of "interest."
A bank uses the money they have on deposit from CDs differently. Since they know exactly how long they will have the deposit, they use the money themselves to invest in greater returns. We do the same thing.
The difference is banks use the money they earn to pay giant bonuses to executives and make a handful of investors even richer. But Capital uses the money we earn to pay greater dividends to our shareholders...which is every single one of our members—like you!
