Commercial Certificate of Deposit (CDs)
Traditional and FLEX CDs for Businesses
When you commit to keeping your funds with Union Bank for a defined period of time, we reward you with our highest interest rates. A business Certificate of Deposit (or CD) is an interest-earning vehicle that keeps your funds on deposit for an agreed length of time. CDs are said to have “matured” when their term is up. There is often a penalty for withdrawing your funds before the maturity date, but at Union Bank the interest your CD earns doesn’t have to remain in the CD until maturity. You can choose to deposit the interest you’ve earned automatically into another account, or use your CD as collateral for a loan. Union Bank offers small business CDs with a variety of terms and options tailored to meet your business needs.
Need additional flexibility? A FLEX CD offers even more options than a Traditional CD, including unlimited deposits, one monthly withdrawal without penalty (up to 25% of the principal balance; minimum CD balance requirement still applies), and FDIC Deposit Insurance up to applicable limits. No penalty CDs are a great way to invest your money while maintaining some access to your funds.
Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS®)
Deposits up to $250,000 are insured by the FDIC. When you sign a Certificate of Deposit Account Registry Service (CDARS) agreement with Union Bank, you also receive full FDIC insurance for high-dollar deposits over $250,000.
