CD Ladder Calculator  

CD Ladder Calculator

Use this calculator to examine the benefits of investing in a series of Certificates of Deposits with different maturities, also called a CD Ladder. With a CD Ladder, you can benefit from higher interest rates for longer maturities, while achieving better liquidity, rather than investing in a single long-term CD.

To maximize results of the CD Ladder, each maturing CD should be reinvested in a new CD with a term equal to the longest term CD. This strategy allows you to take advantage of the higher rates normally associated with longer-term CDs while maintaining frequent access to your funds.

For example: If you established a ladder with 6-month, 12-month, 18-month and 24-month terms, when the 6-month CD matures, invest the funds in a new 24-month CD. Similarly, when the 12-month CD matures, invest the funds in another new 24-month CD, and so on. At the end of two years you'll have four, 24-month CDs with a CD maturing every six months.
