CD Overview

CD (certificate of deposit) is an FDIC insured investment. CDs are similar to savings account in that they are insured and thus virtually risk-free; they are "money in the bank." The main difference is that a savings account allows you to make withdrawals from your account, while with a CD you receive the higher interest rate simply for keeping your money in the bank.
