FAQs about 6-month CDs
What is a 6-month CD?
A 6-month CD, or Certificate of Deposit, is an account into which you agree to deposit a certain amount of money for a fixed period of 6 months. In return, the bank or financial institution offers a higher interest rate than regular savings accounts.
How does a 6-month CD work?
When you open a 6-month CD, you deposit a sum of money with the promise not to withdraw it for 6 months. In exchange, Guaranty Bank provides a fixed interest rate that's typically higher than standard savings accounts. At the end of the 6 months, you receive your initial deposit back along with the accrued interest, or you can roll the funds over for another term at the current interest rate.
Is a 6-month CD worth it?
Absolutely! If you're looking for a short-term investment with a guaranteed return and can commit to not accessing the funds for the duration, then a 6-month certificate of deposit may be right for you. Learn more about your personal banking options today!
