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