LADDER YOUR FUNDS FOR MORE FLEXIBILITY
When opening your new certificates of deposit, we recommend a technique called “laddering”, a strategy that deposits approximately equal amounts in every maturity within a given range, allowing you more flexibility and an ability to move quickly in the event of rate changes. (Early withdrawal penalties may apply when withdrawing funds before the maturity date).
For example, if you had $50,000 in a Money Market Account, you could:
Open a 1 year term certificate with $10,000
Open a 2 year term certificate with $10,000
Open a 3 year term certificate with $10,000
Open a 4 year term certificate with $10,000
Open a 5 year term certificate with $10,000
Then if rates do go up at some point, you still have some flexibility with certificates maturing at different times. Take a look at our rates and decide what would work best for you.
