Trade-Up Your Certificate
SPIRE offers a unique, ‘Trade-Up Your Certificate’ program, which allows you to take advantage of rising interest rates.
You have the option to trade any existing Certificate to a new Certificate of equal or greater term. There is no limit to the number of times you can trade up. A fee of 1% of the principal balance of the existing Certificate will be imposed on each trade-up.
Dividends can be paid to the Certificate, Share Savings Account, Money Market Savings Account or Checking Account. All dividends are calculated daily and paid quarterly. Actual payment is at calendar quarter end and at maturity.
