FAQs

  • Q:  What is a Certificate of Deposit?
    A:  A savings product that earns interest/dividends on a lump sum for a fixed period of time. The money must remain untouched for the entirety of the term or risk penalty fees or loss of interest/dividends.
  • Q:  Do CDs carry risk?
    A:  While it's understandable to wonder whether any investment can or will lose money, CDs represent a safe option for savings due to federal insurance of up to $250,000. At Texas Bay, we offer additional insurance up to another $250,000, for a total of up to $500,000.
  • Q:  What happens to a  CD if the Stock Market crashes?
    A:  Putting your money in a CD doesn't involve putting your money in the stock market. Instead, it's in a financial institution. So, in the event of a market crash, your CD account will not be impacted or lose value.
  • Q:  How much money should I put into a CD?
    A:  The specific amount you put into a CD depends on your personal finances. The best way to decide how much money to put into a CD is to figure out how much cash you can afford to part with for an extended amount of time
  • Q:  What is a "term", and when will my CD mature?
    A: The term is the length of time of an investment. Texas Bay's CDs range in term length from 6 months to 60 months. Your Certificate of Deposit will mature at the end of your selected fixed term. For example, if you choose a 8-month term, it would mature at the end of those 8 months, or a 60-month term would mature in 60 months.
  • Q:  What can you do with your CD once it matures?
    A:  You have three options when your CD matures:
    • Let the CD auto renew. It will roll into the same term at the current rate.
    • Roll your CD into a new CD with a different term and rate.
    • Withdraw your ending balance.

      Refer to  your original CD Agreement for additional terms & conditions.
  • Q:  Can I cash in a  CD before it matures?
    A:  It is not recommended, but yes, you can withdraw your deposit before the maturity date. If you do, you will incur an early withdrawal penalty.
  • Q:  Is there a penalty for an early withdrawal on an IRA Certificate?
    A:  Yes. f funds are being withdrawn from an IRA Certificate, penalties will be charged and IRS taxes may apply.
  • Q:  Can a CD have joint owners?
    A:  Yes. Certificates can have joint owners as long as all of the joint owners are members of Texas Bay.
