Certificates of Deposit

If you’re looking for a safe place to put your hard-earned money and don’t need liquid access to your funds, a Certificate of Deposit is a great investment option. With a variety of terms and competitive rates, all of our CDs are insured by the FDIC and provide a variety of payment options for the interest you earn.

Details

  • Terms from 3 months to 5 years
  • Minimum balance $1,000
  • Interest paid by several electronic options
  • Penalty for early withdrawal

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)

It's never too late to start saving for retirement. An Individual Retirement Account is still one of the best ways to save for your future retirement years. Several IRA's are available including the Traditional, Roth, SEP and Simple Plans.

IRA's are for everyone who has earned income, although how much a person can deduct depends upon your income and whether you are covered under a qualified retirement plan. At First Bank of Berne, you may invest your IRA deposit in any of our certificates of deposit.
