Information as of:

For All Types of Certificates of Deposit (CDs)

Immediately following is the general account information which applies to all Dollar Bank Certificates of Deposit. Specific variances for each CD are listed below that CD’s name. Some CDs listed may not currently be available. Please review both sections for full disclosure of your CD.

Annual Percentage Yield: The Annual Percentage Yield reflects the current interest rate and the effect of interest compounding. The Annual Percentage Yield assumes that interest will remain on deposit until maturity. A withdrawal of interest will reduce earnings. The interest rate will be fixed for the term of the account. Refer to the current rate chart for the Annual Percentage Yield (APY).

Minimum to Open: The minimum balance required to open and maintain a certificate is $2,500.

Balance for Interest: Interest will be calculated on the daily ledger balance in the account. This method applies a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day.

Transaction Limitations: No additional deposits are permitted with this certificate. No principal withdrawals without penalty are permitted until the maturity date and the grace period thereafter.

Maturity Date: The maturity date of this certificate is based on the open date and the term and will be shown on your certificate document.

Automatic Renewal: This certificate will automatically renew upon maturity unless we receive contrary instructions from you. There is a grace period of seven days after the maturity date during which you can redeem your certificate without a penalty. No interest will be earned for this grace period if the certificate is redeemed.

Early Withdrawal Penalty: A penalty will be charged if you withdraw principal before the maturity date. The penalty for early withdrawal from this certificate will equal the years remaining until maturity (including partial years) multiplied by the principal being withdrawn, multiplied by the difference between the contract rate on the certificate being withdrawn and the rate currently offered on certificates with terms closest to the years remaining until maturity on the certificate being withdrawn. The penalty, however, shall not be less than three month’s simple interest for certificates having terms of 12 months or less and shall not be less than six month’s simple interest for terms greater than 12 months with interest calculated at the contract rate.

CD Ladder Certificate (Growth)

Composite APY: The composite APY reflects the total interest earned based on the average balance over the full term of the CD Ladder assuming all certificates remain on deposit until their respective maturity dates. Therefore, the deposited balance earning interest will decrease as individual certificates mature. As a result, the average balance over the full term of the Ladder will be LOWER than the initial amount deposited.

There is a grace period of seven days after the maturity date during which you can redeem your certificate without penalty. No interest will be earned for this grace period if the certificate is redeemed.

Early Withdrawal: A penalty will be charged if you withdraw principal before the maturity date. The penalty for early withdrawal from each certificate will equal the years remaining until maturity (including partial years) multiplied by the principal being withdrawn, multiplied by the difference between the contract rate of the certificate being withdrawn and the rate currently offered on certificates with terms closest to the years remaining until maturity on the certificate being withdrawn.
