FAQ about Certifcate of Deposit (CD) Accounts & Online Banking

A certificate of deposit (CD) account enables your deposited money to earn a fixed interest rate over a predetermined amount of time. There are two key distinctions between a CD and a traditional savings account, the first being that the money cannot be withdrawn from a CD prior to the agreed upon date without a penalty. However, because of this, CD accounts tend to offer greater rates of return than savings accounts.

When your CD reaches maturity at the end of the predetermined term, it will automatically renew as an online CD, continuing to earn you money. Alternatively, you may withdraw your funds or request new terms for the renewed CD if done within ten days of the maturity date.

You will be able to withdraw deposited money from your CD account before the maturity date, but it's commonplace for banking institutions to impose an early withdrawal penalty.

With Bank of Hope's Online Hope Preferred CD, the early withdrawal penalty for a one, three or six month term would be the amount equal to 30 days simple interest. The early withdrawal penalty for eight, ten or twelve month terms will equal the amount of 60 days of simple interest. Terms of eighteen months or longer will have an early withdrawal penalty equal to the amount of 90 days simple interest.

Unsure whether or not you will need access to the initial deposit within the near future? In such a scenario, we suggest starting with a smaller amount, choosing a shorter term option, or considering the flexibility of a checking account as an alternative.

Bank of Hope takes all possible measures to ensure safe online banking for our CD and all other banking activities. While we invite you to click here to learn more about enrolling online, rest assured that your account will be protected by multiple layers of identity detection.
