Unity One CU informs: What is CD Laddering?

Mon, Mar 18, 2019 @ 10:56 AM / by Alyssa Guillory posted in certificate of deposit, Unity One Credit Union

With interest rates so low, getting the most out of your savings can be a challenge. So how do you earn money from your savings without tying it up for years? Enter the magic of CD laddering.

What’s a CD?

Certificates of deposit, also known as share certificates, are like a savings account where you can’t withdraw the money for a certain period of time. In return for keeping your money in a CD for a period of time, your financial institution pays you a higher rate of return. 

What’s a CD ladder?

CD laddering is a simple concept: Divide the amount of money you have to save into separate certificates that mature at different intervals. For instance, put $500 in a 1-year certificate, another $500 in a 2-year certificate, another $500 in a 3-year certificate, and so on. The longer the term, the higher the interest rate you'll earn on it.

As each certificate matures, you can reinvest the money in a longer maturity certificate. At a certain point, the ladder will be made up entirely of long-term, high-yielding CDs. And since you have a CD maturing regularly, you can always cash it in if you need the money.

For help starting your CD laddering, contact your credit union.

Unity One CU informs: BNSF Technology Awareness Day 2019

Tue, Mar 05, 2019 @ 12:16 PM / by Alyssa Guillory posted in BNSF Railway, Unity One Credit Union, Technology Awareness Day

0 Comments

 

 

Over 100 students received a hands-on dose of reality as they participated in Unity One Credit Union’s Dollars to $ense breakout session during BNSF Railway’s Technology Awareness Day on Saturday, February 16, 2019. The interactive financial simulation was designed to engage high school students through a hands-on saving, spending and budgeting activity based on career and lifestyle decisions.

Attending students were given a budget sheet containing their profession, starting salary and an overview of the program. They were required to stay within their given budget while paying for basics such as housing, utilities, transportation, clothing and food. Students learned quickly that temptations like eating out and purchasing the most expensive car were easy ways to get in financial trouble. 

“This activity is one of our most requested presentations, because it condenses a whole semester’s worth of financial education into a thirty minute breakout session. Students gain valuable insight without facing harmful, real-life financial destruction. BNSF Railway has been a wonderful partner, and Select Employer Group, to work with on furthering our financial education outreach efforts. Teaching the idea of budgeting to students is a matter of life or debt, and we take it very seriously,” said Alyssa Guillory, vice president of marketing at Unity One Credit Union.

Teachers and non-profits in the Fort Worth area may request to host a free Dollars to $ense event by visiting Unity One’s website at www.unityone.org.
