6-Month CD Rates

CDs, or certificates of deposit, give consumers a secure means of growing savings over a fixed period of time. A 6-month CD is a short term CD that helps consumers by giving them a quick turnaround on their deposited funds. Most 6 month CDs have minimum initial deposit and balance requirements and incur penalties when “called,” or closed, early.

The rate table above allows you to shop around for the best CD rates in the 6-month category and compare different features offered by various banks and credit unions. Some institutions will give discounts on loans if you have a CD with them, and others might offer a free checking account that is linked to the CD for your convenience.

6-Month CD Rate History – Average APY (%) Rate Trend over Time

When a CD Expires

Once the CD maturity date is reached, you will have the option to withdraw all of the money (plus any interest earned) or roll it over into a new CD. Many institutions have an automatic roll over policy, meaning that they will automatically stick your funds into another CD if you do not give them any other instructions in time. Usually, you will have a 10-14 day window in which to decide what to do with your deposit. Though 6-month CDs don’t offer high interest rates, compared to long term CDs, its short time frame is helpful if interest rates are in a downward trend, as it gives you a break during which you can put those funds to better use in a longer term CD.
