Looking for a risk-free way to increase your savings or accumulate money for a specific life goal? With a low minimum deposit of $500, a Certificate of Deposit (CD) from The First is a safe and easy way to save money locally in Bucks County. A CD may also be the ideal choice if you want an investment that can easily be converted into cash.

Do stock market fluctuations make you nervous? Unlike other investment accounts, CDs are insured by the FDIC for up to $250,000. They are also guaranteed to grow in spite of market lows because your balance will increase steadily with interest. CDs are also more useful for short-term savings goals than the stock market, which many people invest in for retirement. You can choose a term that will end just when you are ready to make a big expenditure such as a vacation, home improvement project, or child-related expense like education or orthodontic work. CDs can also protect you from impulses to spend extra money as soon as you receive it. If you get holiday gift cash or a year-end bonus, why not place them in a CD that matures at the beginning of summer, so you can pay for a fun trip.
