A link to the Truth-in-Savings disclosure is no longer available on Chartway’s website. The following information is from a conversation with CSR.

  • The Early Withdrawal Penalty for the 19-month Promo CD is 180 days, with partial withdrawals allowed.
  • Funding can be by ACH, wire, check, or through a CO-OP Shared Branch network transfer.
  • Maturing funds will be distributed by cashier’s check to the address on file or transferred to a Chartway Prime Share Savings account.
  • There is a 10-day grace period before the 19-month Promo CD automatically renews as an 18-month CD.
  • Unlimited beneficiaries can be designated, with assigned percentages an option. Full legal name, DOB, and Social Security numbers are required for each beneficiary.

DA reader, thowellIII, mentioned a possible (but avoidable) fee in a Forum post.

Chartway has a Single Account Fee, so if you close the CD and only have the Prime Share Account, you could be hit with a fee. You can avoid the fee by having a second custom share account (even with just a token amount in it).
