Opening a CD is very similar to opening any standard bank deposit account. The difference is that you’re agreeing to leave a lump-sum deposit untouched for a predetermined period of time in exchange for three things.

  • The interest rate: Locked rates are a positive thing because they provide a clear and predictable return on your deposit over a specific time period and do not change if the market changes.
  • The term: This is the length of time you agree to leave your funds deposited to avoid any penalty. The term ends on the “maturity date,” when your CD has fully matured, and you can then withdraw your funds penalty-free. FNB offers a wide range of terms to fit your financial needs.
  • The principal: This is the amount you agree to deposit when you open the CD.

Benefits of Opening a Certificate of Deposit

Unlike most other investments, certificates of deposit are fixed, safe, and federally insured. CD interest rates can often be higher than the rates with standard savings accounts and are generally higher if you’re willing to invest for longer periods. CDs have become a more attractive option for savers who want to earn more than what most savings, checking, or money market accounts pay, but without taking on the risk or volatility of the market.

Key Points

  • Certificates of Deposit may pay higher interest rates than the best savings and money market accounts in exchange for leaving the funds on deposit for a fixed period of time.
  • CDs are a safer and more conservative investment than stocks and bonds, offering lower opportunity for growth, but with a non-volatile, guaranteed rate of return.
  • Although you lock into a term of duration when you open a CD, there are options for exiting early should you encounter an emergency or change of plans.
