CD Ladder Calculator

As easy as 1, 2, 3 - and maybe 4 and 5.

It's called a CD Ladder because each certificate you open is one step - usually a year - longer than the rest. By opening multiple CDs - for example, with savings terms of 1, 2, 3 and 4 years - you benefit from the higher rates of the longer term certificates and the liquidity of the shorter term ones. This calculator can help you simulate the returns from a variety of ladder set-ups, to see which one offers your desired results.

CD Ladder Calculator

Use this calculator to examine the benefits of investing in a series of Certificates of Deposit 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.
