Certificates of Deposit, also known as CDs, are a type of investment which pays higher interest than savings accounts. They also have less risk than stocks and many other types of investments. CDs do require you to agree to keep your money in the CD for a specific period of time.
When you place your money in a savings account, you are paid an interest rate in exchange for the bank being allowed to use and invest your money to make more. A CD works in the same way, but because you agree to keep your money in the investment longer, the bank has the freedom to make long-term investments. In exchange for the reduced liquidity, you get paid a higher interest rate.
You can take out the money in a CD early, before you agreed to, but there is a penalty involved. It is best to use CDs when you know you can keep your investment in the account for a longer period of time. Fortunately, there are CDs which keep your money locked for as little as six months, so you can choose a term that works for you.
With a certificate of deposit, you open the account and put in the money you wish to invest. Different types of accounts may have different minimum amounts. You keep your funds in the CD for the term you have agreed to, whether it’s a few months or many years. At the end of the term, you can withdraw your funds on your maturity date. At that time, you will have your initial investment plus all the interest you’ve earned available to you.
PeoplesBank has a variety of CDs with different terms. Whether you have $100 or thousands to invest, we can help you place your money with competitive rates and terms fitting your financial goals. Best of all, the PeoplesBank team works with you to help you find the right solutions for your money. Contact us today to start your investment journey!
These are the traditional CDs which lock in your investment. PeoplesBank has terms of as little as one month to ten years. It takes as little as $100 to open a 12-month CD at our bank, and many of our CDs renew automatically, allowing you to keep investing if you’d like. Interest on longer-term CDs compounds monthly.
With traditional certificates of deposit, the interest rate you get at the start is what you earn for the term. But what happens if interest rates rise while you have your CD? If you have a Bump Up CD, you may bump your rate once during term to the current PeoplesBank Bump-Up rate. PeoplesBank Bump Up certificates of deposit have terms between 16 and 60 months and monthly compounding interest. With a deposit of $1000 or more, you can bump up once during your term and can even withdraw up to 25% up to seven days before the maturity date.
If you’re looking for a way to invest your money, CDs offer many benefits:
*Interest must be retained in the account in order for compounding to occur
