Frequently asked questions

  • The 9-month CD is available for a limited time only, so act fast to lock in our highest rate in years. 

  • You could potentially lose all the interest you've earned if you withdraw funds from your CD before the end of the term. Talk with us about your options.

  • If you already have money on deposit at Vibrant—whether that’s in a checking or savings account or another CD—you cannot use those funds to open a 9-month CD unless you’ve deposited those funds within seven (7) calendar days of opening a 9-month CD.  

    Similarly, if you move funds from Vibrant to another financial institution, those funds cannot be redeposited as “new money” for at least 60 days. 

  • Sorry, you can’t—but we’re glad you like our high-yield savings accounts! Members are only eligible for a single rate bonus for the 9-month CD.  But hey, 5.75% APY is still a pretty terrific rate. 

  • Each member can open a maximum of two (2) 9-month CDs, each with a maximum deposit of $250,000. 

  • We’ll reach out to you shortly before your CD reaches its maturity date to find out if you want to withdraw cash, roll your deposit into a different CD, or let it automatically renew as a 12-month certificate. 

  • You can open a Vibrant account from anywhere in the United States. You are eligible to join Vibrant Credit Union if you: 

    • Are a member of one of the associations we partner with.

    • Are a domestic partner or immediate family member of a current Vibrant Credit Union member. 

    • Live or work in one of the neighborhoods, communities, or rural districts defined in our geographical area.
