Great Rates on 30 – 35 Month certificates
For a limited time, we have terrific rates on Term Share Certificates. Earn 1.15% APY* on Certificates with terms from 30 to 35 months. Banks call them CD’s, Credit Unions call them Term Share Certificates, but whatever you call them they offer a higher interest rate than a regular savings account and are far safer than the stock market.
Call us at 800.828.6446 to lock in your rate. Taleris Term Share Certificates require a minimum $1,000 deposit and dividends are paid quarterly.
*APY = Annual Percentage Yield. $1000 minimum deposit. Limited time offer. Rates subject to change without notice. Credit Union membership required. Substantial penalty for early withdrawal.
International Credit Union Day
Since 1948, International Credit Union (ICU) Day is the celebration of the history and achievements of the Credit Union movement. It is a day to honor those who have dedicated their lives to the Credit Union movement, and to recognize the efforts of those working in the Credit Union industry. Most importantly, it is a day to show appreciation to our members.
This year, Taleris is celebrating ICU Day on Friday, October 17. In keeping with the spirit of the day, we’ll have snacks and refreshments at both our offices for members who stop by. If you’re in the neighborhood, come on in, say hello, and have a snack on us!
Free Annual Credit Report
It’s a really good idea to check your credit report at least once a year. You’ll need to make sure the information is correct and request corrections if necessary. There are some private companies that offer credit reports but only one that is government sponsored and absolutely free of charge. You can access this website at annualcreditreport.com and then follow the instructions to get your report. You are entitled to receive one free credit report every 12 months from each of the nationwide consumer credit reporting companies – Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. This free credit report can be requested through the website, by phone or by mail.
It’s Called Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
It’s one of the ways we keep your accounts secure. Multi-Factor Authentication ensures that only you can access your Taleris accounts.
MFA renews every two (2) years, so you will be asked to re-enter your information at least on a bi-annual basis.
