About Term Deposits

Term deposits are investments which earn you a fixed rate of interest when you deposit your money for a specified period of time (term). Motor City Community Credit Union provides competitive rates for both short and long term deposits.

Our members also feel at ease knowing their principal and interest is guaranteed up to a maximum of $100,000 in non-registered accounts.*

Short Term Deposit: A non-redeemable savings certificate with a fixed interest for a specified term (20 to 364 days).

Term Deposit: A savings certificate which earns a fixed interest rate for a specified term (1 to 5 years). There is no withdrawal privilege prior to maturity.

*Principal and interest is guaranteed by the Deposit Insurance Corporation of Ontario (DICO). The role of DICO is to protect depositors of Ontario credit unions. Deposit insurance is part of a comprehensive protection program in all Ontario credit unions which is backed by provincial legislation. If you would like to know more about DICO or have a question about the insurance of your deposits, please contact DICO at 1-800-268-6653 or visit their website www.dico.com.

Considering a Spousal RRSP? Know the Basics

A spousal RRSP is a strategy where one spouse makes the contributions, but the other spouse “owns" the plan.

A Spousal RRSP might be a good plan for you if:

  • You have been making significant contributions to your RRSP over the years and are concerned about the taxes you will pay at retirement.
  • You are worried that your spouse many not have enough retirement income.
  • To check if you and your spouse are on track for retirement, please use the Retirement Planner calculator:

Retirement Planner

With a Spousal RRSP, usually the individual who will have the higher retirement income (through company pension, CPP, etc.) refrains from maximizing his/her own RRSP and instead contributes to a Spousal RRSP.  Upon retirement, income from the Spousal RRSP is paid to the spouse, ensuring a more independent lifestyle for that partner.

Speak to your Motor City Community Credit Union financial specialist today to find out why you should invest in a Spousal RRSP.
