Yes, joint owners and/or beneficiaries are required on your Acadia Share Certificate.
Note: Both Certificates of Deposit (CDs) and share certificates are low-risk deposit accounts where your money can grow at a fixed rate. The main distinction between them is that CDs are products offered by for-profit banks, while share certificates are offered by member-owned, not-for-profit credit unions. Share certificates are federally insured by the NCUA while the FDIC insures CDs at banks. Acadia FCU offers share certificates as part of our savings options.
