Choose a Bank of Hazelton Certificate of Deposit (CD) in 3 Easy Steps

Certificates of deposit (CDs) provide customers a “safe haven” for parking their money while accumulating interest. Putting money into a Bank of Hazelton certificate of deposit and getting it out are easy, so depending on how long the term of your CD, it offers “liquidity” in that your funds are not locked up for too long. Our CDs are affordable to even the smallest investor. And while other investment options (such as stocks or mutual funds) may offer higher returns, they also carry higher risks and fees. In contrast, bank CDs guarantee the safety of the principal, plus the interest you’ve earned, because they are FDIC insured.

How do you invest in a certificate of deposit? Just follow these 3 steps:

  1. Decide how long you want to invest a specific sum of money.
    CDs come with a wide variety of terms, which means you can adapt them to your needs. If you have money you want to “park” for just a short period, determine when you will need the money again. Will you have to pay taxes in three months? Will you want it for next year’s vacation? Remember, if you have to withdraw the funds before maturity, early withdrawal penalties may apply.
  2. Remember that typically, the longer the term, the higher the interest rate for the certificate of deposit. If you won’t need the money for some time, choose longer terms.
  3. If you think rates are going to go up, you may want to choose a short-term certificate of deposit.

During a time of fluctuating rates, you may want to choose a shorter term in case rates climb significantly higher.
