One-Time Additional Deposit

A really nice feature offered on all ICCU CDs is the “1-time additional deposit in first 60 days,” following the account opening. As a colleague of mine stated, “That's a handy feature for those trying to transfer money into the CD. Holds and transfer delays can take time.” According to CSR, there is no limit on the amount you can add to the CD, but you only have one window of opportunity within the first 60 days.
