Four Year CDs - Branch Banks 2021

Four year CDs are a longer-term CD and offer a fixed rate for 4 years in return for a commitment to keep the money in the bank for this period of time. While savers can withdraw the money (termed "breaking the CD") high penalties make this undesirable. Generally, an individual should not invest in a four year CD unless they are comfortable parting with the money for this period of time.


Four year CDs from FDIC insured banks are insured up to FDIC limits (generally $250,000 per account holder per bank). If your deposit is over the FDIC limit then you may not receive the uninsured money in case of a bank failure. For this who remain within FDIC limits, the principal threat is inflation. The value of longer-term CDs are especially prone to be eaten away by inflation, especially if the CD is opened in a rising rate environment.


Four year CDs currently pay between .40-.60 percentage points more in interest than a one year CD. In general, CDs of this duration are best opened as part of a laddered CD portfolio or if the depositor thinks that rates will either stagnate or drop over the next couple of years. To get a sense of rate trends, please visit our BestCashCow rate analysis page.


Advantages of four year CDs

  • 4 year CDs provide a fixed rate for the term of the CD
  • The rate is higher than a savings account or a 1 year CD to compensate for the longer term.
  • Branch-opened CDs can be done quickly in one day.

Disadvantages of four year CDs

  • The saver's money is locked away for four years unless they want to break the CD and pay a penalty.
  • In a rising rate environment, inflation will reduce the value of the money in the CD over time.
  • Branch CDs require the saver to visit a branch and be subjected to cross-sell pitches and other marketing tactics.

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.
