Added to the product line in August 2019, the 19-month CD initially offered a 1.75% APY. That rate lasted until this past June, when it dropped to 1.15%. As other rates have fallen in the past four months, the 19-month CD’s APY has become competitive.

As stated in the Terms and Conditions brochure, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:

Any certificate term greater than 12 months will be a 180 day interest penalty.

Partial withdrawals are allowed, but if a withdrawal brings the account balance below the required $10k minimum, the certificate may be closed.

12-month No-Penalty CD

In a Live Chat, CSR stated that unlimited penalty-free withdrawals are allowed throughout the term, as long as the balance does not fall below the $1k minimum opening deposit. While most No-Penalty CDs permit an early closure without a penalty, if this 12-month No-Penalty CD is closed early, there is a penalty of 90-days of interest.
