CD Maturity and Rollovers
A Certificate of Deposit, or CD, is a special type of savings account that holds your money for a specific amount of time with an Annual Percentage Yield (APY) that is typically higher than a standard Savings account. A main difference with a CD is that, typically, a withdrawal during the term will incur a penalty.
When the CD reaches the end of its specific term (example: 36 months), the CD “matures.” Starting on the date of maturity, you have 10 days to withdraw, move or create a new CD without penalty. This is called a “grace period.”
If you do not act within the grace period, the CD will roll over and lock into a new CD. This new CD will keep the same term as the previous CD, but the rate will be adjusted to reflect the current rate offered by Consumers Credit Union. This rate may be lower or higher than your previous rate.
