Frequently Asked Questions
A certificate of deposit (CD) is a bank account that earns a fixed interest rate in exchange for locking in your deposit for a specified term. Bask Bank offers CD terms ranging from 6 months to 24 months.
If you don’t already have another account with Bask Bank, you can open a new account by visiting baskbank.com and selecting “Open an Account” from the homepage. You’ll then have the option to choose your desired CD term and follow the prompts to complete your application.
If you already have another account with Bask Bank, you can add a CD to your Bask Bank account by logging into Online Banking and clicking “Discover Products” from the left navigation menu. You’ll then have the option to choose your desired CD term, click “Open CD” under your selection and follow the prompts to complete your application.
You must fund your new CD with a single, lump-sum deposit of at least $1,000 within the first 10 business days after opening the account. If your CD is not funded with at least $1,000 within 10 business days, your account will be closed automatically. Once you make the initial deposit, you will not be able to make any additional deposits until the renewal "grace period" at completion of the CD term.
You can have up to five individually owned and five jointly owned CD accounts per CD term length.
You may withdraw interest that has been credited to your account during the current term without penalty, but you will be subject to an early withdrawal penalty if any portion of your principal balance is withdrawn.
- CDs with terms of 6 months up to and including 1 year are subject to a fee of 90 days of simple interest based on the principal amount withdrawn.
- CDs with terms greater than 12 months are subject to a fee of 180 days of interest based on the principal amount withdrawn.
If your accrued interest is less than the penalty's total amount, the difference will be deducted from your principal.
After you initially fund your CD, you cannot make any additional deposits until after it matures during a renewal grace period at the end of its term. If you wish to deposit more money into a Bask Bank CD Account, you may open additional CD accounts at any time, up to five individually owned and five jointly owned CD accounts per CD term length.
Thirty (30) days prior to your CD maturity date, Bask Bank will send you a maturity notice as a reminder that your CD is about to reach its maturity date. After your CD maturity date, you’ll be given a 10 day grace period during which you can take action to add or withdraw funds, move funds into another Bask Bank CD Account or adjust your term. If you take no action during this time, your CD will be automatically renewed and you’ll receive a renewal letter after the end of the grace period.
The interest rate and annual percentage yield (APY) is a fixed rate. We will pay this rate and APY through your maturity date. On occasion, we may offer promotions or programs offering higher-than-average interest rates.
Solely at our discretion, Bask Bank may bump your rate to the current promotional rate during the term of your CD. Because the interest rate and APY are fixed through your maturity date, Bask Bank is not obligated to authorize a rate bump, and initiating a one-time rate bump at our discretion does not guarantee that we will continue to do so in the future. In the event a promotional rate is applied, a rate change notice will be distributed and available via Online Banking, and the new rate will appear in your account details.
