Let's Start With The Basics  

Certificate of Deposits (CDs) are no-risk, time-bound savings options. Simply set aside a fixed amount of money for a set time and your funds will earn interest until the maturity (term) date. Once your CD matures, you can withdraw your initial deposit plus the earned interest. Yes, it really is that simple – just set it and forget it.
