Certificates of Deposit (CDs)

Interest will be credited to your account or paid to you monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually, at maturity or as agreed upon. The annual percentage yield (APY) assumes that interest remains on deposit until maturity. A withdrawal will reduce earnings. After the account is opened, you may not make any deposits into or withdrawals from the principal in the account until the maturity date.

Premature withdrawal of fund represented by time deposits with an original maturity of 32 days or more

Depositor contracts to keep these funds on deposit until maturity date. In the event of withdrawal of all or any portion of a Certificate of Deposit or Savings Certificate with a maturity of less than 1 year before the maturity date, Federal Regulations require a penalty equal to 1 month's interest. If the maturity of the Certificate of Deposit or Savings Certificate is in excess of 1 year, the penalty required is equal to 3 month's interest. The application of these penalties may require a reduction in the principal amount of the deposit.

  • Example 1
    If the depositor withdraws funds from a 6 months' Certificate of Deposit or Savings Certificate after 15 days, the penalty would be equal to 1 month's interest, even though that much interest has not yet been earned and a reduction of the principal would be necessary.
  • Example 2
    If the depositor withdraws funds from a 6 months' Certificate of Deposit or Savings Certificate after 1 month, the penalty would be an amount equal to 1 month's interest.
  • Example 3
    If the depositor withdraws funds from a 1% year Certificate of Deposit or Savings Certificate after 15 days, the penalty would be an amount equal to 3 months' interest, even though that much interest has not yet been earned and a reduction of the principal would be necessary.

Renewal Policy: If your Certificate is SINGLE MATURITY and does not automatically renew, present It PROMPTLY at maturity as no Interest is payable after the maturity date. If your Certificate will AUTOMATICALLY RENEW, you will have a grace period of 10 days from the maturity date to present this certificate for payment without penalty. If the certificate automatically renews, IT WILL BE RENEWED AT THE RATE IN EFFECT AT THIS INSTITUTION ON THE DATE OF MATURITY.
