Are CDs Safe?

For understandable reasons, people want to know, "Are CDs safe?" In fact, CDs are among the safest ways to save money with a bank. The reason is simple: customer's bank CDs, like any other customer bank account, are FDIC-insured up to the maximum allowed by law.

Plus, you're more likely to earn a better interest rate on a CD with an online bank. Ally Bank, for example, offers competitive rates, and you can even use our website to compare our rates with those of our major competitors.

So, the essential question isn't really "Are CDs safe?" as much as it is, "Which bank should I choose?"
