Frequently asked questions

A certificate of deposit (CD) is an FDIC insured savings account that holds a fixed amount of money for a fixed period of time. With a CD, your interest rate is guaranteed for the entire term of your deposit. CDs are one of the safest  options available for saving.

"Term" refers to the length of time you agree to deposit your funds. Your CD will mature at the end your term, at which point you can withdraw your initial investment + earned interest penalty free. At this time you will also have the option to renew your account at the current rate.

We offer a flexible range of both short and long term options.

You may not make any deposits into your account before maturity.

You may make withdrawals of principal from your account before maturity, but the amount withdrawn may be subject to an early withdrawal penalty. You can only withdraw interest credited in the term before the maturity of that term without penalty.

You can withdraw interest only on the crediting dates. For questions about early withdrawal, please contact us at 1-866-246.2400.
