Term Deposit

A deposit at a bank or other financial institution that has a fixed return (usually via an interest rate) and a set maturity. That is, the depositor does not have access to the funds until maturity; in exchange, he/she is usually entitled to a higher interest rate. One of the most common examples of a term deposit is a certificate of deposit. It is also called a time deposit. See also: Demand deposit.

time deposit

An interest-bearing savings deposit or certificate of deposit at a financial institution. Although the deposits formerly included only deposits with specific maturities (such as certificates of deposit), they now are considered to include virtually all savings-type deposits. Compare demand deposit.

Time deposit.

When you put money into a bank or savings and loan account with a fixed term, such as a certificate of deposit (CD), you are making a time deposit.

Time deposits may pay interest at a higher rate than demand deposit accounts, such as checking or money market accounts, from which you can withdraw at any time.

But if you withdraw from a time deposit account before the term ends, you may have to pay a penalty -- sometimes as much as all the interest that has been credited to your account. Some other time deposits require you to give advance notice if you plan to withdraw money.

The stock of small-denomination time deposits includes deposits with a range of different maturities.

For checkable deposits (demand deposits and OCDs), savings, and small-denomination time deposits, we have summed the amounts at commercial banks and thrift institutions, calculating the user costs by dividing the corresponding summed expenditures by the sum of the quantities.
We therefore set the own rate on small-denomination time deposits at thrift institutions as the commercial bank rate plus 25 basis points.
