Certificate of Deposit (CD)
For years, CDs have been popular with savers looking for more predictability for their funds. And for good reason. CDs are the easiest way to save if you don't need immediate access to your money. They usually pay you a higher interest rate than a traditional savings or money market account and, generally, the longer the term of the CD, the higher the interest rate.
- Fixed rate of return (earn higher rates with longer terms)
- Variety of terms available ranging from 7 days to 10 years with automatic renewal
- FDIC insured to the maximum permitted by law
- Supplement retirement savings with a tax-deferred IRA CD
Individual Retirement Account (IRA)
An Idividual Retirement Account (IRA) is one of the best tools to help you fund your retirement, combining the benefits of tax deferral with potential interest compounding.
