Perfect for early and long-term savers, a Navy Federal Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA) allows you to earn dividends and grow your education savings tax-free.
With an ESA Money Market Savings Account (MMSA), you get all the perks of a basic savings account but with higher rates—meaning the greater your balance is, the greater your earnings will be.
ESA Certificates allow you to craft your education savings plan by earning at a locked-in rate for your choice of term length.
