CD Calculator – Get the Most Interest out of Your CD

How to Use a CD Calculator

With our CD Calculator, you can calculate how much interest a CD would pay. Just enter:

CD Rate
Leng of Term
Compound frequency
Investment amount

The CD calculator also can be used to compare CDs with different terms and interest rates, to see which may yield the highest returns. You can also use it to compare the amount of interest a CD earns with other investments such as stocks, bonds, annuities, real estate, and mutual funds. 

To find out how much interest you earn after taxes you only need to enter one additional piece of information, your marginal tax rate. Finally, our CD calculator will tell you the inflation-adjusted value of your investment if you enter an assumed inflation rate.

Best Guaranteed Interest Rates

A fixed annuity is essentially a Certificate of Deposit (CD) issued by an insurance company rather than a bank. Fixed annuities provide a guaranteed interest rate for the term of the contract. The table below shows the best-guaranteed interest rates available today for 2 to 10-year contract terms.
