and why should I invest in one?
Can I make withdrawals from
my CD account?
What is the minimum amount and
term required to open a CD?
A Certificate of Deposit (CD) is a form of time deposit, meaning it will mature on a given date, which depends on the term of the CD. Consider a CD if you want a fixed rate for a specific term and do not need regular access to your money. Total deposits, including CDs, are FDIC-insured to the maximum amount allowed by law.
In general, you can withdraw the interest earnings on a CD at any time without an interest penalty. Withdrawals of principal ? the amount originally deposited — are allowed only during a 10-day grace period that occurs at the end of the CD term. Withdrawals of principal any other time during the term of the account may be subject to an early withdrawal penalty. The amount of this penalty is disclosed in your Rates and Fees schedule.
You can open a traditional CD with as little as $100 and for a term of only 3 months. Union Federal CDs are available only at our Rhode Island branch.
Get returns you can count on with a Union Federal CD. If you
can afford to set aside funds for a few months or a few years,
you can take advantage of a way to save that avoids market
fluctuations. With only one rate for the full term of your CD,
you’ll know in advance what your investment will produce.
