How do CDs work?

How do CDs work?

A CD is an interest-bearing account, where funds must remain in the account for an agreed upon period of time, or “term”. You choose the investment term that works best for you – with our CD offering terms ranging from 32 days to 5 years. Early withdrawal penalties will apply if funds are withdrawn before term maturity.

Generally, CD accounts let you earn a higher rate of return on money you know you won't need for a while. The fixed interest rate is guaranteed for the term of the CD if funds remain in the account until term maturity, making CDs a great low-risk investment option.
