The experts at Vio Bank understand that savings planning is highly individualized; however a few general guidelines regarding CDs and savings accounts follow:

  • Opt for a savings account if there is a need to access money in the near future.
  • A CD is a good option if the money isn't needed immediately and a guaranteed interest rate is appealing.  
  • One way to balance access to funds and maximize the return on investment is to open multiple CD accounts with varying term lengths, also known as CD laddering.  A CD ladder strategy provides for the maturing of CD investments across time, while earning a higher rate of return on the funds that aren't needed immediately.
