Two Year CDs - Online Banks 2017

Two year certificates of deposit provide a saver with a fixed rate for two years in return for a commitment for keeping the money in the bank during that period. If the CD is "broken" and the funds are taken out earlier, banks assess a substantial penalty. A depositor should only invest in a two year CD if they do not need the money for the term of the CD. All two year CDs listed on BestCashCow are FDIC insured.

Online banks often offer rates that are higher than a CD from a branch-based bank. An individual who is comfortable banking and managing their money online may find an online bank to be a good choice. But before opening an account, it is wise to research the following questions:

  • How long does it take to open a CD and when is the rate locked?
  • How can the account be funded? More sophisticated banks provide an electronic means of funding while less sophisticated rely on sending a check via the mail.
  • How is the consumer notified when their CD is nearing maturity?
  • How can the funds be withdrawn once the CD has matured?

All banks listed on BestCashCow are FDIC insured; strongly recommends that you stay within FDIC insurance limits and that if you are unsure of how the limits affect you, please visit the FDIC website.
