As stated on TruStone’s Deposit Rates page, the Early Withdrawal Penalty reads as follows:

The penalty will equal 365 days’ dividends on your account if the original term is greater than one year.

Funding and Access Maturing Funds

Funding a CD Special can be done by ACH, wire transfer, or partially from another TruStone Financial account. TruStone Financial participates in the CO-OP Shared Branch network, making the transfer of funds relatively easy. Maturing funds will be distributed through a cashier’s check, wire transfer, or transferred to another TruStone Financial liquid account. There is a 10-day grace period before the 20-month CD Special renews as a “standard 12-month certificate at the rate listed on the current TruStone Financial rate sheet.”

Dividends can be paid out either monthly or quarterly, if so desired.

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