Just make an appointment to visit your nearest CUTX location. Our account specialists will help you choose which kind of CD you want to open and when you want your CD to mature. Then you fund your CD.

It's all automatic. Interest is compounded every month. And when your CD matures, you can roll the full amount into a new CD or withdraw some or all of the funds.

Yes, there's a penalty for withdrawing your principal before the CD matures. And the earlier you withdraw, the larger the penalty. There only exceptions are death or disability of the holder, or if the holder reaches age 59 1/2 for IRAs.

Your CD will renew automatically. But you have a grace period of seven calendar days after renewal to withdraw your money without penalty.

No, once you have opened the CD, you can't make additional deposits into it.


The stuff, loan team and customer service were very helpful throughout my car loan process. Credit Union of Texas was able to offer me the best rate available for my vehicle. I would highly recommended CUTX to all of my friends and family.
