CD rates worth locking in

Got a sizable amount to invest? 

We have the perfect solution – the Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service® (CDARS). This innovative investment solution offers the convenience and high rate of CDs with the security of full FDIC insurance up to $50 million. Using CDARS, we’ll break up your investment into smaller increments and distribute each portion among multiple financial institutions to ensure complete FDIC coverage. You’ll only have to work with us – one rate, one bank, one relationship.

The 23 month CD will automatically renew as a 24 month CD. Stated  APY assumes interest remains on deposit until CD maturity. A minimum $1,000 deposit is required to open this account.

Build a CD ladder.

New to this savings strategy? A ladder lets you spread your investment over CDs of different terms and maturity dates. (Generally, the longer the term, the higher the interest rate.) How do you build it? Let’s say you have $10,000 to invest. Just to keep things simple, you could split that amount into two $5,000 CDs of different term lengths and rates. Or make four $2,500 investments in CDs of varying lengths, like two in short-term CDs and two with longer terms. When the short-term certificates of deposit mature, you reinvest the original amount (plus interest earned) in a longer term certificate. Simply repeat that strategy each time a CD matures, moving up the ladder and multiplying yields as you go.
