Certificates of Deposits (CDs) (2024)

1 At our discretion, we may change the interest rate and the annual percentage yield on the account at any time. Interest begins to accrue no later than the business day we receive credit for the deposit of non-cash items (for example, checks). If you close your account before interest is credited, you will not receive the accrued interest. We use the daily balance method to calculate interest on the account. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day.

4 Early withdrawal penalties apply to CDs. For additional fees related to these accounts, please refer to our Schedule of Fees.

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, the Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

What does this mean for you? When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.
