Certificates of Deposit FAQ
Q: Are there tax benefits to saving with a certificate of deposit?
A: Investing your funds in a certificate of deposit is going to affect your taxes in many ways. There are not always tax-deductible benefits to saving with a traditional CD. If you are looking for a savings certificate that will generate tax benefits, consider investing in a Roth CD.
Q: How do I get higher rates for my CD?
A: At Arbor Financial, we reward higher deposits with higher dividends. The more money you store in a CD, the greater your rewards. Consult with our rates chart to decide on the right deposit amount for you.
Q: How often can I withdraw interest from a certificate of deposit (CD)?
A: Certificates of deposit allow you to withdraw interest generated funds monthly. This ensures that you are still making money from your investment without affecting your APY. To see how much you could earn per month, calculate your rates using the calculator above.
