What is an IRA CD?

When you choose a CD for your IRA, you earn a guaranteed interest rate for a fixed term. Plus, you get the tax advantages of an IRA, and your money is FDIC insured. This is an alternative to investing your IRA money in stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other investment assets.

When your IRA CD matures, you can automatically renew it, or transfer your balance into another retirement account and continue to let it grow. Other options are available depending on your individual eligibility. Visit your local branch to help you choose the retirement account that offers the best benefits for you.
