What is a Share Certificate?

A Share Certificate is a savings certificate entitling the bearer to receive interest. A Share Certificate bears a maturity date, a specified fixed dividend rate and can be issued in any denomination. When you open a Share Certificate, your money is on deposit for a specific time period. For agreeing to keep it on deposit for a specified time period, you earn more than you would in a regular savings account. If you cash it in before its maturity date, you pay a penalty.
