Certificate of Deposit
Enjoy a guaranteed return on your investment with a CD from Flanagan State Bank. CDs offer a risk-free way to grow your funds without worrying about the ups and downs of the stock market.
The way it works is easy: simply choose your term and then lock in your rate. Interest rates are based on your term and, when your term is up, you will receive an increase in funds.
What is a Certificate of Deposit?
A certificate of deposit (CD) is a type of personal savings account. The distinguishing feature of CDs is that you commit to leaving a certain amount of money in your account for a predetermined period of time. Terms vary from a 30-day CD to a 5-year (60 month) CD. In exchange for committing to a term, you can earn a higher interest rate on your savings; generally, the longer the term the higher the interest rate. CDs are also insured by the FDIC up to $250,000.

When to choose a CD
Is a CD the best savings account option for you? A certificate of deposit may be the right option if you know you can commit to leaving the balance alone for the term period. Otherwise, you could face fees for early withdrawal. If you do think you might need to touch your savings occasionally, it could be better to go with our Kasasa Saver, Personal Savings, or Money Market Investment Account. All three options offer penalty-free access to your funds.
