The Deposit Account Disclosure describes the Early Withdrawal Penalty (EWP) as follows:

If you withdraw any of the principal before the maturity date, we may impose
a penalty of _____ Months interest earned on the amount withdrawn.

The individual EWPs for each term length are,

  • 1 year – six months EWP
  • 2 year – nine months EWP

The Deposit Account Disclosure also states that,

On CDs that are opened online, the only interest option available is to have the interest credited to the CD quarterly.

Accessing Funds Following Maturity

Some banks that offer CDs online make the funding process quite easy by utilizing an ACH transfer, only to make gaining access to matured funds difficult. According to CSR, upon CD maturity, you can “send a secured message through the online banking platform with instructions to have your funds transmitted by ACH transfer or certified check.” Easy.
