The APY (Annual Percentage Yield) is a percentage rate that reflects the total amount of interest paid on the account, based on the interest rate compounded daily for a 365-day period.

If you receive a periodic statement, that statement will include the Annual Percentage Yield earned (APYE) on your account for the period covered by the statement.

What is the penalty for early withdrawal?

You may pay an early withdrawal penalty or a Regulation D penalty if you withdraw funds from your account before the term is complete. Some exceptions may apply. Penalties could reduce earnings on this account.

The Regulation D Penalty is seven days' simple interest on the amount withdrawn and applies to:

  • Withdrawals made within seven days of account opening including the day the account was opened.
  • Withdrawals made during the grace period, when additional deposits are made during the grace period and the withdrawal exceeds the amount of the matured CD balance.
  • Withdrawals within seven days of any prior withdrawal where the Bank's early withdrawal penalty is not applied.

Other than the Regulation D penalty described above, any money withdrawn from the CD before the end of its term will be subject to an early withdrawal penalty based on the length of the CD term. If your term is:

  • Less than 90 days (or less than 3 months), the penalty is 1 month's interest
  • 90 through 365 days (or 3-12 months), the penalty is 3 months' interest
  • Over 12 months through 24 months, the penalty is 6 months' interest, or
  • Over 24 months, the penalty is 12 months' interest.
