Certificates of Deposit

Gateway’s Certificates of Deposit

If you have extra money on hand that you won’t need for a while, but you don’t want to put it in a risky investment, a certificate of deposit (CD) may be perfect for you.

CDs are similar to savings accounts because they’re insured by the FDIC, which means they’re very low-risk. However, you receive a higher interest rate than normal savings accounts because you’re agreeing to not touch that money for a period of time (typically between a few months and a few years). We offer certificates of deposit in 1-month, 6-month, 12-month, 36-month, and 48-month terms, but we can be flexible if you need a different time period.

Get in touch with us to learn more about how CDs work and to see if they’re right for you.
