The 14-month Certificate is also available as an IRA (Traditional, Roth, and CESA), earning the same APY, with the same funding requirements. The promotion page states,
The Dividend Period is the calendar month, the Dividend
Frequency is monthly, and the Dividends are compounded monthly.
I wasn’t able to find the Truth-In-Savings document on the website, but CSR kindly emailed me a PDF version. The Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:
Terms of longer than 1 year - 180 days’ dividends
The penalty imposed will equal the lesser of all dividends earned or terms above.
However, the penalty will not be less than 7 days’ dividends.
Thanks to DA reader, Carpline, for his Forum post about the 14-month Certificate Special.
