Annual Percentage Yield (APY)
How is CD interest calculated?
Interest is computed each day using the daily balance method. We apply 1/365 of that day's interest rate to the available balance. Interest is compounded daily and credited at the end of the day before each maturity date. If requested, interest may also be credited at a different frequency.
Can I choose how my interest is paid?
You may choose a credit to your account, a credit to your account that is immediately transferred to your M&T checking or savings account, or a credit to your account that is immediately withdrawn and paid by check.
Is there a penalty for early withdrawal?
Yes. A penalty may be imposed for early withdrawal. You can withdraw deposited funds from the CD without a penalty at maturity. For automatically renewed accounts, you may withdraw funds during the 10 calendar day grace period after the maturity date, provided that you haven't already added or withdrawn funds during an earlier transaction within the grace period.
How will I know that my CD is near maturity?
Prior to maturity, we will send you a reminder by mail with information on the renewal process and your account terms.
Can I add money to my CD once it has been opened?
For automatically renewable CD accounts, money can be added during the 10 calendar day grace period after the maturity date, provided that you haven't already added or withdrawn funds during an earlier transaction within the grace period. You can also choose to open an unlimited number of additional CDs, but promotional interest rate eligibility is limited to a maximum of $1 million in deposits per customer.
Can I get interest disbursements from my CD?
Yes. Interest disbursements can be automatically made to a linked M&T Checking or M&T Savings account or by a mailed check. Interest disbursements can also be made at your local M&T branch.
Can I make changes to my CD at maturity?
Yes. You may make a withdrawal without penalty, make a deposit, close the account, or change the length of your term on any maturity date of the account or within 10 calendar days after any maturity date on automatically renewable regular time deposit accounts.
