What is a CD ladder?
CD ladders are a great way to maximize your earnings while allowing access to some of your funds at specific time intervals.
For example: Say you invest equal amounts in short-, medium-, and long-term CDs at staggered intervals. When your short-term CDs mature, you typically reinvest the funds in long-term CDs. Remember to consider FDIC limits when building your ladder.

What types of products does PurePoint offer?
What’s the difference between your savings account and Certificate of Deposit (CD)?
Our savings account offers you access to your funds whenever you need them while you earn market-leading rates on your balance of $10,000 or more. It’s easy to make convenient online funds transfers. Just link your savings account to your account(s) at other financial institutions. Transfer restrictions apply for savings accounts. See A Guide to Our Savings Account for more details.
Our Certificate of Deposit (CD) is a savings option that offers you a higher rate of interest in exchange for agreeing to invest your savings for a preset period of time. It can be a great solution if you don't need immediate access to your funds. Keep in mind that an early withdrawal penalty will apply if you withdraw funds prior to maturity. Please see A Guide to Our Certificates of Deposit for more details.
Are PurePoint’s savings and CD rates competitive?
Does PurePoint offer checking accounts?
