The 30-month CD is also available as an IRA CD (Traditional, Roth, and CESA) earning the same tiered APYs, with the same funding requirements.

As stated in the Security Service Truth In Savings (TIS) disclosure, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follow:

Penalty amount will be calculated on the certificates current balance at the time of withdrawal.

If your account has an original maturity of greater than one year, but less than five years: We may impose an early withdrawal penalty equal to the amount of dividends earned, not to exceed 180 days of dividends. In the event that the Certificate has earned less than 60 days of dividends, a penalty equal to 60 days dividends will be assessed to the account.

If an early withdrawal penalty is imposed, the penalty may be imposed regardless of whether dividends which equal the amount of the penalty have been earned at the time of withdrawal. To the extent that dividends in the Certificate account at the time of withdrawal are insufficient to pay the entire penalty assessed, the penalty will be assessed against principal.

Funding and Maturing Funds

According to CSR, a CD can be funded through ACH, wire transfer ($15 fee), by check, or through an internal transfer. Security Service participates in the CO-OP Share Branch network, facilitating the transfer of funds.

Maturing funds will be distributed by cashier’s check to the address on file, by wire, or transferred to a Security Service savings account.

There is a 7-day grace period before a CD renews, although Security Service “reserves the right to decline a Certificate renewal.”

The TIS disclosure states,

You can only withdraw dividends credited in the term before maturity of that term without penalty. You can withdraw dividends any time during the term of crediting after they are credited to your account.

Unlimited beneficiaries (equal shares) can be designated and Social Security numbers are required for all named beneficiaries.
