More facts about CDs:
When you invest in a CD or CD IRA, you agree to deposit a certain sum of money for a pre-determined period, ranging from a few months to several years. In return, you earn a fixed interest rate for the duration of the term. Upon maturity, you receive your original investment plus the accrued interest. CDs are a safe option since they are fully insured by the NCUA (National Credit Union Administration) for up to $250,000, with an additional $250,000 coverage for your IRA.
However, it’s essential to note that withdrawing funds from a CD before its maturity can result in penalties, which may reduce your earned interest or even reduce the principal amount originally invested.
Health Savings Accounts: Another Option
Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are tax-advantaged savings accounts specifically designed for individuals with high-deductible health plans (HDHPs). You can set aside pre-tax money to pay for out-of-pocket medical expenses, including deductibles, copayments, and other qualified health expenses. One of the primary benefits of HSAs is the triple tax advantage:
- Contributions are tax-deductible.
- The money grows tax-free when invested.
- Withdrawals for qualified medical expenses are tax-free.
At NCACU, you also receive a solid return on your HSA deposits! You can earn .50% APY* on your HSA, compounded and credited monthly.
