You can withdraw funds any time after the first 6 days from funding.
The penalty is calculated using the interest method detailed in the Ally Bank Deposit Agreement (PDF). It's first deducted from the accrued interest and then, if necessary, the principal. Keep in mind, you can't make a partial early withdrawal.
For Raise Your Rate CDs, the penalty is calculated using the interest rate in effect on your account on the day you request an early withdrawal.
If the account owner passes away or is judged legally incompetent, we'll waive the early withdrawal penalty.
To make an early withdrawal, log in to online banking and choose Manage CDs to select Early Withdrawal.
