Your CD will automatically renew to a standard CD term closest to the original CD’s term. If you would like to close the CD at maturity, please notify us before, or within 10 days after the maturity date. If the CD automatically renews, the rate for each renewal term will be determined by us on or just before the renewal date. You will also receive a letter when the maturity date is approaching.

The FDIC insures up to $250,000 per depositor, per institution, and per ownership category. FDIC insurance covers deposit accounts — checking, savings, and money market accounts and certificates of deposit. You can learn more about your coverage level using the FDIC deposit insurance calculator.1

If funds are withdrawn prior to the maturity date, a penalty may be imposed on the amount withdrawn and will be subject to the terms of the certificate. In most cases:

  • Terms less than 12 months will be charged 1% of the amount withdrawn.
  • Terms of 12 months to 35 months will be charged 2% of the amount withdrawn.
  • Terms greater or equal to 36 months will be charged 3% on the amount withdrawn.

When withdrawing funds early from your CD, it’s important to remember that interest earned might not offset the penalty for early withdrawal.

If you don't make a decision on the funds in the maturing CD, such as moving to a new CD special or money market account, your CD will automatically renew to a standard (non-promotional) CD of the closest term available.
