Not Your Grandma’s CD
Rather than putting all your funds in one CD, choose multiple CDs and “ladder” their maturity dates. This is a great strategy for the option of accessing funds every 6 months with the higher rates of longer-term CDs.
Start by opening a 6-month CD and a 12-month CD. When the 6-month CD matures, move it to a 12-month. Now your two 12-month CDs are staggered to mature at 6 month intervals.
