Certificates of deposits (CDs) are federally insured, low risk investments offered by financial institutions. These fixed term, and generally fixed interest rate, investments require members to keep funds allocated to the CD at the institution until the fixed maturity date. Once the investment reaches the maturity date, the member may withdraw the funds along with any accrued interest. A member may withdraw the funds early but will be required to pay a penalty thus losing the benefit of the deposit. There are two types of CDs: basic or traditional CDs and jumbo CDs. Jumbo CDs require higher deposit amounts but pay a higher interest rate. In some cases, a jumbo CD may carry additional risk as well.
