Certificates of Deposit
A Bellco Certificate of Deposit (CD) is a savings tool that offers you a higher return on your money than most standard savings accounts. And unlike other savings accounts, CDs offer little to no risk and no monthly fees. They’re a great choice when you want greater earnings and don’t need the money right away.
With a CD, you invest a specific amount of money for a specific period (known as the "term"). With a traditional CD, your investment amount and interest rate remain stable across the term to provide you the highest rate of return.
Bellco strives to be a market leader, offering some of the best interest rates. And no matter what amount you want to invest or for how long, we have a variety of terms to fit your needs.
- Open with as little as $500.
- Earn more with Bellco’s competitive interest rates.
- Choose from a wide array of short- or long-term options.

An IRA CD is a CD held within an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Whether you’re an employee, self-employed worker, or business owner, you may be able to open an IRA to increase your savings for retirement. You can learn more about saving for your future with our MoneySmarts IRA financial education module.
Whether you have a Traditional IRA or Roth IRA, Bellco IRA CDs have a number of benefits:
- Tax-advantages. With a traditional IRA, you defer tax payments on your earnings until the future, when you take withdrawals. (With a Roth IRA, since you’ve already paid taxes on the funds being deposited, you can enjoy future withdrawals tax-free after a certain age.)**
- Safe & secure. IRA CDs are considered very safe instruments in which to invest money for retirement.
- Great rates. You’ll earn better yields than in a traditional savings account.
