Split Your CD Investment For A Better Return

When certificate of deposit interest rates go up and down, it's hard to know what to do with your money. You may not want to tie up all your money in a long term certificate, but you can't take advantage of the higher long term rates if you choose to stay with a more liquid account.

What's The Solution?

A great way to get the best of both worlds is to split your investment. By splitting your certificate portfolio, you can spread your funds out over two different terms. This enables you to increase the overall rate you're earning without locking up all your money for a long term.

Use the following work chart to see an example of how this could work if you split your certificate into two certificates with an equal amount in each. A Dollar Bank Representative can help you complete the charts below. Call 1-888-418-BANK for assistance, or to find a location. click here.
