5 Year CD Rate Trend

5-Year CD Rates

5 Year CD rates are among the highest CD rates in the country and offer solid returns for a fixed investment period. The table above lists the best 5-year CD rates at the top and allows you to filter your results based on investment amount and institution location. Click the plus button to the left of the bank or credit union name to view account features and rate history for the 5 Year CD, or 60 Month CD, offered by that particular institution.

What is a CD?

CD rates, or certificate of deposit rates, represent the annual percentage yield paid by a financial institution as a return on a time deposit made by a depositor. A CD is unlike a savings account in that it is issued for a fixed period of time, before which funds may be disbursed only by way of an early withdrawal penalty. CDs provide a secure way to grow retirement savings at a fixed rate of interest and can be helpful as a hedge against riskier investments in the same portfolio.

How Some People Use 5-Year CDs

Many investors use a CD calculator as a tool to help them decide whether a particular 5 Year CD is a good investment. CD laddering is a strategy used by some investors to turn the high rates achieved with longer term CDs into regular returns. To build a typical CD ladder, you would buy 5 CDs with differing maturity dates – a 1 Year CD, 2 Year CD, 3 Year CD, 4 Year CD, and 5 Year CD for example. After the first year, when the 1 Year CD expires, take the proceeds and buy another 5 Year CD with them. Repeat this process each year until you have 5 Year CDs expiring every year. This strategy helps you to take advantage of the earning potential of the higher CD rates while maintaining liquidity by giving you yearly access to funds (unless you are willing to take an early withdrawal penalty to access your money sooner).

Brokered CDs

Brokered CDs are not the same as direct CDs and come with downsides (as well as benefits) that differ from the CDs listed in the rate table above. Credit union CD rates can at times be higher than bank CD rates, and online banks tend to offer the highest interest rates among banks overall. At FDIC and NCUA-insured institutions, your deposits are covered up to $250,000, including any CDs you buy from the bank or credit union.
