There is an Early Withdrawal Penalty if you withdraw all or a portion of your CD principal prior to maturity, reducing earnings. We calculate all early withdrawal penalties on the principal amount withdrawn at the interest rate in effect on the account on the withdrawal date. The Early Withdrawal Penalty is an amount equal to 180 days of interest on the amount withdrawn, at the simple interest rate applicable to the Time Deposit, regardless of whether the funds withdrawn have remained on deposit for more or less than 180 days. These penalties are waived upon death or legal incompetence of any certificate owner.

How is the interest paid?

The interest is compounded and paid monthly. Interest may not be credited to another account other than the same CD at this time.
