Frequently asked questions

  • You'll need to be at least 18 years old to open an account online. If you're younger than 18, you can open an account as long as at least one of your parents or legal guardians opens the account with you. Schedule an appointment to talk with a banker or call 1-800-323-5109 for more information.

  • You could potentially lose all the interest you've earned if you withdraw funds from your CD before the end of the term. Talk with us about your options.

  • If you withdraw your funds at maturity, your Vibrant CD will automatically renew into another CD term. While most CDs will renew as a CD with the sam term, there are exceptions. 13- and 15-month certificates automatically renew as 12-month CDs at maturity. The 40-Month Bump-Up CD renews as a 36-month certificate. The 23-month CD will renew as a 24-month term CD at maturity. 

  • Depending on the CD term you choose, you may be able to secure a higher annual percentage yield on a CD than on a savings account. If you feel certain you won’t need to use your savings before the CD matures, it can therefore earn more interest than you’d earn with a savings account. 

    In addition, our high-yield savings accounts are tiered accounts—which means that your annual percentage yield changes based on the size of your balance. If you have more than $15,000 but less than $1 million in savings, you may be able to get a significantly higher rate by putting your cash in a CD. 

    Of course, with a high-yield savings account, you can withdraw funds at any time without risk of penalties. Ultimately, which product is best for you will depend on how much money you have in savings and when you plan to use it.
