Can I add funds to my CD once opened?

Once your CD is opened, you cannot add funds until your CD matures. When your CD matures, you’ll have a 7-calendar day grace period — starting on your maturity date — to transfer funds or make other changes.

When is interest posted to my CD account?  

Dividends are compounded daily and paid monthly.

What happens to my CD at maturity?

There is a 7-calendar day grace period starting on your maturity date to:  

  • Change the term  
  • Make additional deposits or withdraw funds  
  • Close the CD  

After your 7-day grace period, your CD will automatically renew into the same term if you don’t make any changes. Exceptions are:  
Welcome CD and Liquid CD will renew into a 12-month Term Share CD at the prevailing rate  

Step-it-Up will renew into a 24-month Term Share CD at the prevailing rate.
