Certificate of Deposit (CD)

For those looking to grow their savings, consider a Bankers Trust Certificate of Deposit (CD). A CD is an FDIC-insured investment option where money is put into an account that is not used for a period of time. This allows you to earn interest at a predetermined rate, which tends to be higher than most savings accounts.

CD and CD IRA Features

  • Interest compounded annually
  • Interest may be disbursed monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually, or at maturity by transfer to your Bankers Trust account or electronic transfer (ACH) to your account at another institution
  • $1,000 minimum deposit for CDs and $200 minimum deposit for CD IRAs to open
  • $500 minimum deposit required for savers under age 18
  • Bankers Trust Wellness Option allows early withdrawal without penalty* when you have a Bankers Trust primary checking account** and need to redeem your CD early due to a medical emergency
  • Automatic renewal option

Finalize Account

* Federal law requires an interest penalty of 7 days’ interest be paid on amounts withdrawn within the first six days of deposit. Wellness option does not apply to Health Savings Account (HSA) CDs
**A Primary Checking account is the account into which you routinely deposit the majority of your income or benefits from any source and against which you routinely authorize payment of the majority of your expenses each calendar month.

Add-On CDs

Most CDs allow you to make only one deposit when you open the account. With a Bankers Trust Add-On CD, you can continue to make deposits to the CD after the account has been opened.

  • Minimum opening deposit: $1,000
  • Additional deposits accepted during the term of the CD
  • The total of any additional deposits cannot exceed the initial deposit amount
  • Early withdrawals are subject to penalty

Add-On CDs must be opened in a Bankers Trust branch.
