You may make regular and catch-up (if applicable) contributions any time for a taxable year up to and including your federal income tax return due date, excluding extensions, for that taxable year. The due date for most taxpayers is April 15th. If the tax year is not designated in writing, the current year in which the contribution is received shall apply.

Please see Rate Sheet for interest rate and annual percentage yields available for Non-Retirement and Traditional IRA, Roth IRA and Coverdell Education Certificates of Deposit (CDs).

Frequency of rate changes (variable rate account) – We may change the interest rate on your account at any time.
Determination of rate (variable rate account) – At our discretion, we may change the interest rate on your account.
Compounding and crediting of interest – Interest begins to accrue on the day you open or renew a CD; provided that the renewal is made during the applicable grace period, in which case interest on the renewed CD begins to accrue as of the maturity date. If an additional deposit of cash, check or any other noncash item is being made to the CD at maturity or within the grace period, this deposit will begin to accrue interest as of the date of that additional deposit. On all Fixed Rate, Instant Access and Variable Rate CDs, interest will be compounded daily and credited monthly, with the final interest credited when your CD matures.
Withdrawal of interest prior to maturity – Interest may be paid on Fixed Rate and Variable Rate CDs by check or credited to another American Bank account monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually and will be determined upon the term of the CD. Interest may be paid on Instant Access CDs by check or credited to another American Bank account monthly. Monthly check payments only apply to CDs with a balance of $2,500.00 or more. The annual percentage yield assumes interest will remain on deposit, in the CD, until maturity. A withdrawal will reduce earnings.  An interest check will be sent when the interest amount is $1.00 or more.  For check amounts less than $1.00, the accrued interest for that period will be added back into the principal and will continue to earn interest.
Minimum balance to open the accounts – You must deposit $500.00 to open a CD and $250.00 to open a Traditional IRA, Roth IRA or Coverdell Education CD.

Transaction limitations – You may not make any additional deposits into your account before maturity. You may not make withdrawals of principal from your account before maturity without penalty. There is a 10-day grace period after each renewal date during which withdrawals are permitted without penalty. You may withdraw interest any time during the term after it is credited to your account without penalty. The annual percentage yield assumes interest will remain on deposit. A withdrawal will reduce earnings.
Time requirements – Your account will mature _______________ .
Early withdrawal penalties – A penalty may be imposed for withdrawal before maturity, whether such withdrawal occurs voluntarily (made by you) or involuntarily (such as by our set off against funds in the account or as a result of an attachment or other legal process). We may close your account and impose the early withdrawal penalty on the entire account balance in the event of a partial early withdrawal.

The terms of your CD obligate you to leave the funds on deposit with us until the maturity date of your renewed CD, except the Instant Access CD. Any withdrawal which we permit during the first 7 days of the initial term of an Instant Access CD, or prior to the maturity date of any other CD, may be subject to a financial penalty.  We will apply an exception in cases of death or legal incapacity of any owner of the CD.  Additional exceptions may apply for Traditional and Roth IRAs.  Please contact us with any questions.
