Variable Rate Certificate

Are you keeping a high balance in a savings account or money market account? 

You could be earning a higher rate of return with an ALEC Variable Rate Certificate. You’ll also enjoy peace of mind with insured security.

ALEC Variable Rate Certificates offer highly competitive rates, currently at 2.535% APY* and vary on a monthly basis with the 13-week U.S. Treasury Bill (Index + 0.15%).
