In short, a CD is a savings certificate with a fixed interest rate and maturity date. Sometimes called a share certificate by financial institutions, a CD is a safe and easy way to lock in a rate and ensure a predictable return on your savings.
When opening a CD at TCF, make a minimum deposit of $500 and select the term you want from a variety of options, ranging from 3 months to 10 years. With CD interest rates, a longer term typically means a higher interest rate. So a 5-year CD will typically offer a better rate than a 1-year CD. Check out our current CD rates.
When you might choose a CD
There are many benefits to a certificate of deposit, but the main advantage is predictability. With a fixed interest rate, you know exactly what your new balance will be when the CD matures.

CDs are subject to early withdrawal penalties. The early withdrawal penalty for all automatically renewing accounts is generally 1% of the amount withdrawn for each year of the CD's term at the time of withdrawal, not to exceed 3 years. However, the penalty will never be less than $25 or seven days' interest.
