6-Month IRA CD

A short term IRA CD could be a beneficial part of your investment strategy, depending on your overall personal finance goals. The 6-Month IRA CD, or 180 Day IRA, basically offers you a way to take advantage of IRA (Individual Retirement Accounts) tax implications while keeping your funds relatively liquid during a season of interest rate increases. The IRA component of this product limits how you can use the funds contained within it, and the CD component limits potential growth, as well as well as the product’s time horizon.

Within an IRA Savings Account, you are able to allocate contributed funds into different investments (e.g., mutual funds, stock funds, index funds), the range of possible investments being determined by the bank issuing the IRA. As a result, a lot of standard IRA Savings Accounts come with management fees, and your return will fluctuate based on the performance of the underlying investments. IRA CDs, on the other hand, guarantee a specific return and are more likely to avoid costly management fees.

Laddering a 6-month IRA CD would give you the option to reinvest it at its maturity date or put it into a standard IRA account (in order to avoid the penalties associated with cashing out the IRA). Though it varies based on current CD rates, banks and credit unions usually offer 6-month IRA CD interest rates that are comparable to a standard savings or IRA account. Many financial institutions have an online banking system enabling consumer to apply online for IRA CDs. An ACH transfer is usually easy to set up and is an easy way to fund the account.
