Certificate of Deposit

Looking for a safe, high-yield investment? A Metamora State Bank Certificate of Deposit is the answer. Most of our CDs have a low minimum deposit of $1000 so it doesn’t take a lot of cash to get on the road to higher returns. And you can choose whether you want the interest you earn to be reinvested, deposited in a Metamora State Bank checking or savings account, or paid directly to you.

Please call one of our offices and ask about our CD Specials.

CDARS

Full FDIC insurance on deposit accounts through the Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS.)

One Bank

Everything is handled through our bank. Your large deposit is broken into smaller amounts and placed with other banks that are members of a special network. Then, those member banks issue CDs in amounts so that your entire investment is eligible for FDIC insurance. By working with just one bank—our bank—you can receive insurance from many.

One Rate

You earn one rate on your entire investment-so you can forget about multiple rate negotiations and the need to consolidate multiple disbursement checks.

One Statement

You receive one regular account statement listing all of your CDs along with their issuing banks, maturity dates, interest earned and other details. With CDARS, there’s no need to manually consolidate statements, track changing collateral values, or use private surety bonds.

Please contact one of our branches for additional information on how the CDARS program can work for you.

Early Withdrawal Penalties

Early Withdrawal Penalties on CD Accounts: (a penalty may be imposed for withdrawals before maturity)
If your account has an original maturity of 31 days or less, the Penalty we may imposed is greatest of:

  • Seven days’ interest on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty if the withdrawal is made within the first six days after the deposit;
  • all interest that could have been earned on the amount withdrawal during a period equal to one-half the maturity period; or
  • all interest on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty.

If your account has an original maturity of one year or less,the fee we may impose will equal three months interest on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty.

If your account has an original maturity of more than one year:

  • The fee we may impose will equal six months interest on the amount withdrawn subject to penalty.

In certain circumstances such as the death or incompetence of an owner of this account, the law permits, or in some cases requires, the waiver of the early withdrawal penalty.

Automatically Renewable Time Account

This account will automatically renew at maturity. You may prevent renewal if you withdraw the funds in the account at maturity (or within the grace period mentioned below, if any) or we receive written notice from you within the grace period mentioned below, if any. We can prevent renewal if we mail notice to you at least 30 calendar days before maturity. If either you or we prevent renewal, interest will continue to accrue after maturity for up to 10 calendar days. The interest rate will be the new rate.

You will have ten calendar days after maturity to withdraw funds without penalty from a Certificate of Deposit.

Non-Automatically Renewable Time Account

This account will not automatically renew at maturity. If you do not renew the account, interest will not continue to accrue after maturity.
