FEDERAL RESERVE RATE INCREASE

In an effort to slow down the growth of record-high inflation, on July 27, the Federal Reserve made the decision to increase the federal funds rate by 0.75%.

The federal funds rate is important because it affects many other rates, including the prime rate, which determines the rates on variable-rate loans, such as credit cards, lines of credit and other products.

What does this mean for Members?

Is the federal funds rate expected to fluctuate again this year?

It depends on how the economy is performing. The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will meet multiple times this year to assess interest rates and the current environment.

Does this mean rates on deposit products will also be increasing?

We always strive to maintain very competitive rates to help Members save. The federal funds rate is just one factor we consider when determining if we will increase dividend rates. You can find our current rates on our website.
