Our Annual Percentage Yield (APY) is accurate as of 11/13/2018. The APYs for other banks are provided by mybanktracker.com and are accurate as of 11/09/2018. The APYs in this table are for the state of California.
If you make an early withdrawal, you may pay a penalty. An additional IRS tax may also apply; please consult your tax professional.
We don't charge any maintenance fees for your Ally Bank CD. When your CD matures, you can withdraw your money at no charge during a 10-day grace period. If you decide to renew your CD, don’t do a thing, and we’ll automatically renew it.
Withdrawals before the maturity date are subject to penalties. Partial withdrawals aren't allowed. Are there exceptions?
If you redeem your CD before the maturity date, the penalty we charge will depend on your CD term (see penalty schedule). How is the penalty calculated?
See the Ally Bank Deposit Agreement for full details on how we calculate the withdrawal penalty.
Your withdrawal may be subject to an additional 10% Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax if it's made before you reach age 59½. You may want to check with a tax professional before making withdrawals from your IRA CD.
We're an online bank, which means we don't have physical bank locations. By eliminating the costs associated with traditional brick-and-mortar banks, we can offer great rates and outstanding customer care.
With Ally Bank, you get everything you expect from a traditional bank and more:
- Peace of mind. No hidden fees. No maintenance fees. No minimum balance required
- Keep track. Access your account anytime, anywhere with online and mobile banking
- Ally Ten Day Best Rate Guarantee. When you renew your CD, you'll get the best rate we offer within 10 days of renewal date if our rate goes up on your term and balance tier within that time. Most banks only offer one rate – the one you get the day you renew.
- Interest compounded daily. We grow your money faster with interest compounded daily. Many others compound monthly, quarterly, or even annually.
