      Our Annual Percentage Yields (APYs) are accurate as of 12/11/2016. The APYs for other banks are provided by mybanktracker.com and are accurate as of 12/02/2016. The APYs in this table are for the state of California.

      If you make an early withdrawal, you will pay a penalty.

      Fees

      No hidden fees

      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.

      Early Withdrawals

      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.
