Certificates of Deposit Frequently Asked Questions
How do I open a Certificate of Deposit account with Crestmark Bank?
Click on CD New Account Request form link on the CD Rates page. It is an electronic form, so you’ll need Acrobat Reader (if you don’t already have it installed on your system, it is a free download, so just click on the link to get it). You can fill out the form, save it, and email it back. If you cannot open the document, or are have problems filling it out, you can use the “Print” version.

Do you accept out of state funds?
Yes, we do. In fact, we can open an account for you by email, mail or fax.
Do you accept brokered deposits?
No, we do not. We need to deal directly with the depositor. If you are not sure whether you are a deposit broker, please see http://www.fdic.gov/news/news/inactivefinancial/1999/ for the list of exclusions.
What supporting documents do you need to open an account?
For Consumer accounts, we need legible photocopies of a drivers’ license for each party on the account. If you do not have a drivers’ license, a state-issued photo ID can be used. For Business accounts, we need a copy of your Articles of Incorporation. For Trust accounts, we need a copy of the Trust document, as well as photo ID for each trustee on the account. Please mail or fax a copy of these to us at the address below, or scan and email the images of the supporting documents to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I give you my money to fund the account?
We accept wires or checks. Send your wire to ABA: 072413764, Account Number (use your 10-digit phone number as the Account Number). We ask that you use your phone number as a temporary account number in case we receive your wire prior to receiving your CD New Account Request form. If you are sending a check to fund your account, the check should be made payable to Crestmark Bank, and sent to 5480 Corporate Drive, Suite 350, Troy MI 48098; attn: CD Department. Please note that we cannot open your account until we receive the funds from you.
When is my account opened if I send a check?
Your account will be opened as of the date we receive your check. We will not process your Certificate of Deposit until one week later to ensure that your check clears. You can expect to receive your signature cards and other documents by mail from us about two weeks after we receive your funds.
Do you compound interest?
No, we do not. We pay what’s called simple interest, which means that your interest does not make interest.
Do you provide APY?
No, we only provide APR because the interest does not compound. We go by the Annual Percentage Rate.
I have received my documents in the mail; which ones do I send back to you?
The top copy of your Certificate of Deposit is for you to keep. You’ll sign and fax this to us when you wish to redeem your Certificate of Deposit at maturity. The second copy is stamped “Please complete and return.” Sign all of the highlighted areas and send back in the stamped, self-addressed envelope. If you are a business, and have not already send us the Corporate Authorization Resolution document, please complete it and mail that back as well.
I would like to receive my interest monthly. Can you Direct Deposit (or ACH) my interest to me?

Can I view my account online?
