"Couldn’t be easier! A simple phone call to CCCU investment personnel and they provide me with rates and terms in consultative manner.

SimpliCD is a certificate of deposit (CD) program, managed by Primary Financial Company, LLC, a Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO) owned by members of the Corporate Credit Union Network including Corporate Central. SimpliCD enables members to easily invest substantial funds in federally insured CDs. This turnkey program combines the security of CD investing with the advantages of competitive rates and consolidating reporting.


  • Every day, SimpliCD searches its nationwide network of issuers for the best rates on federally insured jumbo CDs.
  • Rates are available for CDs in terms ranging from one-month to five-years and in amounts ranging from $99,000 to $20 million.
  • Placements are made by purchasing multiple CDs in $99,000 and $250,000 increments at separately insured issuers. A detailed tracking system ensures that no more than the Standard Maximum Deposit Insurance Amount of principal is placed in any single financial institution within the SimpliCD program.
  • SimpliCD purchases the CDs in a custodial capacity on your behalf, passing all federal insurance benefits through to you so that you remain the legal owner of the CDs.


  • SimpliCD tracks, monitors and collects all of your earnings. Participants receive a single consolidated monthly interest payment for all SimpliCD investments that are due interest that month.
  • SimpliCD purchases may settle anywhere from same day to 16 days. The transfer of funds will continue to be the same as other SimpliCD transactions.
  • Purchases and redemptions through the SimpliCD program will be reflected on the same Investor Daily Transaction Statements.


  • You receive a monthly Investment and Interest Summary that details all of your accrued interest and investment activity for all certificates. The summary will include DTC CDs even though the interest payment frequency on DTC CDs can be quarterly, semi-annual, annual or at maturity.
