Your savings deserve
a bump

A Bump Certificate is a type of certificate that gives you the option to “bump” up to a higher APY during the certificate’s maturity term. The outcome? More savings, just like that.

Increase your rate once a year, every year, for the life of the certificate.

  • Increase your rate 3x (once per year) with a 3-year Bump Certificate.
  • Increase your rate 5x (once per year) with a 5-year Bump Certificate.
