Good question! This is actually something people ask us a lot.

APY stands for "annual percentage yield" and is how banks show you how much interest you would earn over one year, and that includes compounding interest. What does compounding interest mean? Simply put, it's when your interest earns more interest. For example, if you put $100 in a savings account, and after one month you earned $1 in interest, the next month you will be earning interest on $101—your original balance, plus $1 interest. This continues every month and is considered compounding. APY is the final percentage of interest you see at the end of the year after compounding has been accounted for and means your interest rate will look slightly lower than the advertised APY. For more information on this topic, check out this article where we break it all down.

Once you open a CD, you can’t make additional deposits or withdraw funds until the maturity date.

A penalty will also be charged for early withdrawals, which may result in a reduction of principal.

Account closures or withdrawals made prior to the maturity date are subject to a penalty amount equal to:

  • Term less than 1 year, 90 days interest on the amount withdrawn
  • Term of 1 year or more, but less than 2 ½ years, 180 days interest on the amount withdrawn
  • Term of 2 ½ years or more, but less than 5 years, 365 days of interest on the amount withdrawn
  • Term of 5 years or more, 540 days of interest on the amount withdrawn

There is a 10-calendar day grace period after each renewal date where you’re able to make a withdrawal or close your CD without a penalty.
