CDs are a set-it-and-forget-it kind of investment. You deposit funds for a set length of time, earning more interest than a savings account, and with no financial risk. But you won’t have access to your funds during that time, and early withdrawals are subject to a significant interest penalty. CDs are as safe as it gets.
CDs are great for extra funds you have on hand that you don’t expect to tap during the investment period. CDs can be rolled over at term’s end, or cashed out.
- Variety of term lengths from 3 to 60 months
