Matures For U

When deciding whether to put money into a certificate of deposit (CD), consider what happens after the CD matures. Certificates of deposit are time deposits that come in specific terms, such as six months or five years. You get a guaranteed, fixed interest rate so long as you hold the CD and leave the money untouched.

As the owner of a CD, you are responsible for knowing its maturity date. Mark it on your calendar, set reminders, or do whatever you need to remember this date so you can adjust your plans accordingly. Check with your bank or credit union if you have questions about the maturity date of your CD. The institution will send you a notice before your CD matures.

If you like the safety and stability of this savings vehicle and are satisfied with the APYs, another option after your CD matures is to put more money into CDs by building a CD ladder. This allows you to capitalize on interest rate changes, avoid early withdrawal penalties and save for different financial goals.

Let's say you haven't decided in advance. Once the CD matures, you may have a grace period, established by the bank, to decide whether to renew the CD or withdraw the funds. The bank will pay interest, if any, once the CD matures in accordance with your account agreement and bank policy during the grace period.

Bonds often are referred to as being short-, medium- or long-term. Generally, a bond that matures in one to three years is referred to as a short-term bond. Medium or intermediate-term bonds generally are those that mature in four to 10 years, and long-term bonds are those with maturities greater than 10 years. Whatever the duration of a bond, the borrower fulfills its debt obligation when the bond reaches its maturity date, and the final interest payment and the original sum you loaned (the principal) are paid to you.

Yield-to-Maturity (YTM) is the rate of return you receive if you hold a bond to maturity and reinvest all the interest payments at the YTM rate. It is calculated by taking into account the total amount of interest you will receive over time, your purchase price (the amount of capital you invested), the face amount (or amount you will be paid when the issuer redeems the bond), the time between interest payments and the time remaining until the bond matures.

Current yield matters if you plan to sell your bond before maturity. But if you buy a new bond at par and hold it to maturity, your current yield when the bond matures will be the same as the coupon yield.

Yield to call (YTC) is figured the same way as YTM, except instead of plugging in the number of months until a bond matures, you use a call date and the bond's call price. This calculation takes into account the impact on a bond's yield if it is called prior to maturity and should be performed using the first date on which the issuer could call the bond.

Interest rates regularly fluctuate, making each reinvestment at the same rate virtually impossible. Thus, YTM and YTC are estimates only, and should be treated as such. While helpful, it's important to realize that YTM and YTC may not be the same as a bond's total return. Such a figure is only accurately computed when you sell a bond or when it matures.

One thing to be aware of is that your lender may charge you a fee if you pay off your loan before its maturity date. Sometimes lenders charge a fee called a prepayment penalty for early repayment because they miss out on interest if you pay in full before the loan matures. Make sure to read your loan agreement first so you can plan for this penalty if need be.

With a traditional CD, you invest a set amount of money for a period of time with a bank or credit union and get access to the initial deposit plus interest earned when the CD matures. For example, if you deposit $15,000 into a two-year CD at 0.90% APY (annual percentage yield), you would get $15,271.21 when it matures.

CDs can be a safe way to stash money you need in the short term because interest is typically fixed and guaranteed when the CD matures. With an FDIC-insured CD account, up to $250,000 of your money is also protected in case the bank folds.

When a bond matures, you get the bond's face value or "par" value, which is the principal you let the bond issuer borrow. One difference between traditional CDs and bonds is that you may receive interest payments before the bond matures. Typically, this happens twice per year. So if you put $5,000 into a bond, you'll get $5,000 back when it matures, along with semiannual interest payments, which you could pocket or reinvest. This is why some investors use bonds for a regular source of income.

Smart financing is a key to the success of your small business. A commercial loan can assist you with working capital, equipment and inventory purchase or acquiring a property. Part of smart financing is knowing what to do when your commercial loan matures. The action you take is largely dependent on the lender, the type of loan and your company's situation.

If you need some extra time to make that final payment, a short-term extension is an option. Typical extensions can run from 60 to 180 days, depending on the lender's policy. Extensions are common on lines of credit and construction loans, although one can be issued for any type of loan that only needs a few months beyond its original maturity date. It is not uncommon for a construction project to fall behind schedule. To prevent maturity problems, a lender will write an automatic extension into the note if the construction is not completed on time. On lines of credit, the lender needs updated financial information to renew the loan for an additional term. If the loan matures before updated financial information is available, the lender will temporarily extend the line to allow time to review the credit for renewal.

If a loan is approaching maturity and the lender and borrower are on different pages, a refinance is often the solution. On the lender's side, the business's income or collateral may not be where the lender wants it. It will then push for an exit strategy. If the borrower can't pay the loan in full, it will have to seek alternate financing. On the borrower's side, it may find a better deal at another bank. If that is the case, waiting until the loan matures will allow it to extricate itself without incurring any kind of prepayment penalty.

Your puppy won't reach maturity all at once. Like humans, dogs transition from baby to adult in stages, though the transition happens much more quickly for dogs. Here's what to look for as your puppy matures:

A bond with a face value of $5000 pays quarterly interest of 1.5 percent each period. Twenty-six interest payments remain before the bond matures. How much would you be willing to pay for this bond today if the next interest payment is due now and you want to earn 8 percent compounded quarterly on your money?

In most cases, yes. If you acquire a muni at a discount, you may have to pay taxes on the difference between the par value and the acquisition price. Generally, the taxes are due in the tax year the bond matures, is sold, or is transferred to another entity or person, but you may also choose to pay the tax annually. 041b061a72
